Get Area Board Issue
CATG dropped kerbs Queens Road
1.The lack of a dropped kerb from Queens Road to the driveway which is to the left of the bungalow. 2. The lack of sufficient dropped kerbs in the Groves vacinity to enable this lady to get from her bungalow to the nearby park.
Street / Location
41 Queens Road
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.
