We understand the benefits that mobility scooters can provide and wish to support all of our tenants and residents to retain their independence as much as is possible.
Mobility scooters, buggies and other motorised mobility vehicles must not be stored in communal areas under any circumstances. This applies to both tenants and their visitors who use such vehicles. Finding secure storage and charging areas for these vehicles is particularly difficult in communal schemes where safe access and fire safety is paramount. It is also important that these vehicles are not stored where they present a safety risk/nuisance to the user, other residents and vehicles.
