Statement Not upheld COVID-19 30-Jun-2021
Summary: There was no fault in the Council's decision to implement a road closure, as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although this limited access to some disabled parking bays, we are satisfied the Council considered its equality duties and ensured there was adequate provision elsewhere. In the absence of fault, we cannot recommend a remedy relating to any perceived loss of trade to the complainant's business arising from the road closure.
