haven't go a clue
if there's a stair involved the same width
if its disables access then wheelchair plus a few inches
or the width off a doorway plus a couple off inches so 800mm perhaps :D

also remember the minimum required may stop all but flatpack furniture :eek:

ooooo nooo good point with the wheel chair access think my plans have been stopped untill the architect comes. The plan i was doing was to have the back door to the garden linking to a 700mm walkway to the side of the house for wheely bin and push bike access dont think that will be permitted thinking about it now :cry:

Thanks though

There is no legal minimum width for walkways; it's what your'e prepared to put up with. If you do want a walkway instead of building up to the boundary, you want to be able to get down it without breathing in and walking sideways :LOL:

think we need to remember that alterations must not reduce the ability to escape in case off a fire [subjective i know lol]

wheelchair width is only in commercial situations [this does include domestic accommodation that will be used in case off fire escape connected with the business

Excellent thought bigall i have gone back to my original plan now, i have decided to have plenty of excess out the back door by having it out to the back garden rather than down the narrow walkway ;)
