Ramp to get wheelchair from path into house
Need to make flat access to house ( presently high step) extended to flat area outside, then manufacture gradual ramp with element of grip/friction. What category would cover this?
*****confused**** what do you mean by "category"?
FYI the gradient of the ramp can vary according the length of the ramp; please visit the planning portal then look for building regs docs and you will need Part M for guidance, this can be downloaded and printed for free.

I agree with all of the previous comment but would add that having dealt with people in wheelchairs personally take the regulations as a guide but make the ramp as long & shallow as your situation permits.
