Not much to say about this ramp solution really, except that perhaps a wheelchair lift would have been a better and cheaper alternative!

Any thoughts?

You can see wheelchair lifts here.

    Hi, Saw this article in newspaper and was horrified. Having said that, it would need someone with a bit of sense to see how this ramp was over the top!!!!!! Nothing much else to say, except sensible person with a bit of savvy would have been useful!!!!!!

    I’m not convinced either a ramp or lift is necessary. A pleasant, meandering path of correct gradient appears possible (albeit on looking at a photo). Yes, it still would have taken up the lawn but rests, benches, flowers could have kept some attractiveness and the wheelchair user, some dignity. We always tend to head for solutions based on construction and mechanics (building control and builders are training that way). Perhaps the person themselves, a landscaper and occupational therapist weren’t used at all but would have created a more asthetic, appropriate and friendly solution.

      Interesting idea – thank you for sharing it. I certainly agree with you that, if it is possible within the space, it would be SO much better than this nightmare of a ramp!
