Rationale

A place for people to sit; allows room for several people. Benches are used for resting for an interval of time. They can be important to people with mobility impairments (e.g. needs a cane or crutches) who need a place to rest for a couple minutes while traveling on foot. Additionally, benches are often a suitable substitute for everyday activities like eating, reading, etc. when a picnic table is not available. Pedestrian travel requiring benches is common on college campuses as well as tourist areas.

Examples

Applies to

A bench would be an Amenity node.

Tags

amenity=bench

Optional

backrest=yes/no for people who have problems with their back this could be a useful information.

Rendering

This should probably be rendered as a symbol overlay, similar to the current toilets or recycling nodes.

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. But for purely procedural reasons: I think it's useful, but more votes are necessary to demonstrate real consensus. Shouldn't be difficult. Pray forgive me for raising the bar on this; I feel 8 very quick "yes" votes demonstrate something rather far from consensus. And it shouldn't be rendered by default, as R2D2 said. --achadwick 02:06, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- Normally I would approve, but Gubaer raise a good objection. permanent=yes would be better than bench=permanent. It could be used for a wider range of objects. I approve to all other tags but bench=permanent S.A.L. 15:25, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. permanent=yes is much better than bench=permanent --Skippern 15:56, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. I reverted my vote on good objections up here, "permanent=yes" could be a usefull tag for other amneties. I'll vote yes if bench=permantent is replaced by permanent=yes (a separate proposal Proposed features/permanent has been made for that purpose Sletuffe 23:17, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. Common feature, potential use is well-explained. The "permanent" matter isn't essential, and it's fairly petty grounds for opposing, since accepting amenity=bench does not require us to accept bench=permanent. "Not binding", remember? :-) Chriscf 08:57, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I approve amenity=bench because it is already approved by common usage (tagwatch shows more than 4000 in Europe) but I oppose the optional values, better use movable=yes/no (instead of bench=permanent) and seats=* (instead of length=*) --Phobie 11:56, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Suggest this is closed as "No", and further discussion to "permanent" section of Proposed features/Attributes. Chriscf 17:36, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Vote status: Approved, after the split mentioned below.

Motion to split

There seems to be no objection to backrest, so I suggest we add that to the approved feature, and discuss the others in a more general context, since "applicable to other things" seems to be a recurring sentiment. Chriscf 14:30, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

  • I'm trying to do so now, but haven't had experience with moving/splitting pages. Alexrudd 02:31, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I think I got everything. Controversial bits moved here. Alexrudd 02:53, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
