Proximity to amenities – Employee working hours

The intent of Criterion 1 is that amenities must be open at times when they can benefit employees during typical opening hours for the asset type.

The guidance on ‘Employee working hours’ in the Definitions section should, therefore, be disregarded. However, the assessor must be satisfied that, given the working hours of the assessed building and the opening hours of the amenity, this will benefit building users in line with the aim of the issue.
