11/04/2017 10:53:48 Thank you for raising your issue with the Area Board. The Council has set up a way for local people to decide local highway improvement priorities. A local community area transport group (CATG) of local people and elected councillors comes together to consider issues and proposals and to recommend those schemes that can be taken forward in any year. Before the CATG can consider a proposal, it must first consult the local parish or town council. Only if the parish supports the issue will it be considered further. If your issue is supported by the parish council, it will be submitted to the CATG for consideration. The CATG will then decide whether it should go forward onto the list of priority schemes. Resources are very limited, so it is important that schemes are prioritised in this way. Obviously, not all schemes can be taken forward and some proposals may have to wait a while before they become a priority for funding. The CATG makes recommendations to the Area Board who will decide which schemes will be funded and taken forward. We will keep you informed of progress as we go through the steps outlined.

Who is Affected

The severely disabled resident who has a car via The Mobility Scheme.She uses a wheelchair otherwise including indoors.To get to the park she can access the road from a crossing nearby but then has to stay in the road until she finds someones drive to get back up onto the pavement some distance from her home.

What has been done so far

She has contacted the WC highways dept several times but always speaks to different people or gets told the person she needs to speak to is not in the office and she feels this issue has not progressed at all.I said i would try to help which is why I am reporting the issue.She says she has spoken to Selwood Housing who are supportive of this application.

What would resolve issue

She would like the dropped kerb with suitable access to her driveway. It would be beneficial if her drive could be tarmaced as well as the access from the road to the drive.it would be beneficial for her and I am sure others within her community for there to be more disabled pavement access in the community.

Who needs to come together

Wiltshire Council and Selwood Housing Association.
