I have just been to inspect the dropped kerbs I had requested on Thurston Drive in the car park behind the running track at the Leisure Village.

This came about following discussions I had with a wheelchair using resident when it became clear that while other dropped kerbs were already in place, because there weren’t also ones here, wheelchair users couldn’t access the other footpaths and had to use the road with the obvious dangers that brought.

This conversation came about during one of my street surgeries where I leaflet an area in advance to tell them I am coming so they can let me know if they want to speak to me. I can’t always get everything everybody asks for but I am pleased that at least on this occasion I was able to.
