Is there any legislation that'd override owner agreement in interest of making building accessible?
We are a spiritualist church in Glasgow. We comprise 2 townhouses, which are B listed buildings. For that reason we are unable to adapt the front of the buildings to accommodate disabled access.
To the rear of the buildings, a large extension was built in 1970. A fire-door takes you on to a private lane. This would be an ideal location for disabled access. Unfortunately, the lane is cobbled, with many uneven potholes – so therefore needs to be re-surfaced. However, any attempts to obtain owner agreement has proved negative.
I would be grateful if anyone could advise if there is any legislation that would over-ride owner agreement in the interest of complying with an organisation/charity’s duty to do everything it can to accommodate people of all abilities – whilst, at the same time, improving the area.
