In Land Use Law and Disability,
Robin Paul Malloy argues that our communities need better planning to be safely and easily navigated by people with mobility impairment and to facilitate intergenerational aging in place. To achieve this, communities will need to think of mobility impairment and inclusive design as land use and planning issues, in addition to understanding them as matters of civil and constitutional rights. Although much has been written about the rights of people with disabilities, little has been said about the interplay between disability and land use regulation. This book undertakes to explain mobility impairment, as one type of disability, in terms of planning and zoning. The goal is to advance our understanding of disability in terms of planning and zoning to facilitate cooperative engagement between disability rights advocates and land use professionals. This in turn should lead to improved community planning for accessibility and aging in place.
This casebook published by Carolina Academic Press
is the first land use and zoning law casebook to comprehensively integrate issues of accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Land Use and Zoning Law systematically addresses the complexities of aging in place and of disability in the context of local land regulation. This integrated approach is important because as many as thirty percent of American families have a family member with a mobility impairment, and also because mobility impairments increase with age.
Disability Law and Policy Book Series
Six hundred million people, nearly one tenth of the world’s population, are afflicted with some form of disability. The Cambridge Disability Law and Policy Series addresses legal and policy perspectives that will provide resources for individuals, academics, practitioners and policy makers on how to effectively further the cause of disability rights. This series is a good fit for the Cambridge law list as it adds a specific focused issue to an already well developed general list of titles in human rights, medical/legal issues, law and society, comparative and international law, and globalization.
