Abstract

The COCCINELLA project studied the impact of wheelchair access on conservation and presentation of historic properties and furnished interiors .Its two principal objectives are: to provide advice to wheelchair users, owners and managers of historic houses and other interested parties on the admission of wheelchair users to historic premises in order to comply with Part III of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995; and to provide guidance substantiated by empirical evidence to owners and managers of historic houses in relation to measures that could be taken to minimise problems arising from the passage of wheeled vehicles over historic carpets.
