Blackpool Council commission TMS and PJA to carry out a Post Scheme Quality and Access Audit of the public realm on Blackpool Promenade

TMS and Phil Jones Associates have recently been commissioned by Blackpool Council to carry out a Post Scheme Quality and Access Audit of the public realm, associated with a scheme recently implemented as part of Blackpool's Promenade Movement Strategy.

In addition to the combined expertise and experience of TMS and Phil Jones Associates, the project team is also joined by an NRAC Registered Accessibility Auditor. 

The project is to carry out an independent post scheme Quality and Access Audit which considers the space and how it is now being used, following the principles set out in 'Manual for Streets'.  This Quality Audit will consider the following: 

  • an audit of visual quality
  • a review of how the road is used by all users (functionality)
  • road safety audit (Stage 3)
  • access audit (including consideration of those with disabilities)
  • non-motorised user audit (inc walking and cycling)

The aim of a Quality Audit is to give clients and designers a balanced review of a scheme, which helps to ensure that aesthetic and functional considerations complement each other. 

More information about our experience within this field can be found in the Audits section of our website.
