I AM very disappointed at the level of 'street clutter' on the high street recently.
Street clutter such as irresponsibly placed shop advertising signs (A-Boards) and pavement café furniture can obstruct and hamper a person's progress on the street.
Retailers need to realise that street clutter items such as these are major obstacles for pedestrians, especially those who are blind or partially sighted.
A recent survey by Guide Dogs for its Streets Ahead campaign showed 97 per cent of those with sight loss experience problems with street clutter regularly.
A decluttered high street not only makes it a safer place for those who are blind or partially sighted, but also a nicer, more inviting place for all shoppers.
Please email email@example.com for more information about their campaign and survey findings.
