Hi Cara,

Looking at The Knowledge and eConsult website I see you have used an image of a shopfront in Clevedon which is inaccessible.

One of the issues we discussed in detail was to try to overcome the barrier of conservation and heritage design being seen to freeze out any consideration of accessibility because they were considered incompatible.

Could this be removed please and a more appropriate image put up in its place as soon as possible?
