I am writing to invite you to a meeting on Friday 15 January to hear about a new project to help make parking easier for Blue Badge holders in Reading.
Reading Borough Council has been invited to join an EU Project called SIMON which is
building a Smartphone app to help with navigation and finding a vacant Blue Badge
parking space in the town. This app will need to be tested by local people to
ensure it meets their needs.
Ideally we would like you to come along to the meeting to find out more about
the app and possibly to volunteer to give feedback on how it works for you and
what needs to be done to make the app more suitable and easier to use. This
will enable the app to be changed and adapted according to your recommendations
ahead of it being released for public use.
The meeting will take place at the Civic Offices on Bridge Street on Friday 15
January at 2.30 – 3.30 pm in the Council Chamber. In order to accommodate any
access or other needs you may have, please contact me: Marian.Marsh@reading.gov.uk
Alternatively, you are very welcome to turn up on the day or to contact me by
phone, letter or email to find out more about the project and how to volunteer
and I will be happy to help you.
BSL interpretation will be available at the meeting.
If your organisation works closely with Blue Badge holders, please feel free to
share this information with your contacts.
