There will be a delay in supplying University of Stirling Dementia Centre titles at the moment as the building where the books are stored / despatched from is locked-down now. We will send as soon as we are able.
The purpose of this report is to:
- provide a briefing on key legislation, regulation, standards and guidance, with associated inspection and enforcement powers, relating to building design matters, including external spaces, for people with dementia - both those designed for them and those where they form a large proportion of the user group
- consider where the legislation, regulation, standards and guidance seem to be at variance with the optimal building and external space design guidance for people with dementia
- seek to find a constructive way forward once variances have been clarified.
