28/10/2008 EU Funding Sources Overview, October 2008

EU funding for activities related to tourism is spread over many programmes and initiatives. This is partly because there is no single European tourism policy and therefore no specific EU programme to finance all tourism development projects and actions. At the European Day of Tourism Event on 7th October 2008, European Commission officials presented a range of EU funding programmes where financial support may be sought for tourism related activities. This page presents the main EU programmes with a series of slides addressing a number of EU policy areas, for downloading.

22/09/2008 Accessible Train and Station Design for Disabled People - A Code of Practice

Under s.71B of the UK Railways Act 1993 the Secretary of State maintains a Code of Practice to protect the interests of disabled people travelling by rail. All passenger train and station operators are encouraged to use the document, and those who are licensed must follow its standards. Accessible Train and Station Design for Disabled people: A Code of Practice, published in July 2008, replaced the previous version published by the Strategic Rail Authority, and incorporates a clearer structure, more-up-to-date guidance, and standards mirroring new European rules. This new edition code of practice replaces all previous versions. It provides standards and guidance for accessibility at railway stations, and should be used by all train and station operators whenever they carry out works on their facilities.
