Back to all reports

Although the roads in the new Daw's Hill development are not adopted by you yet, why are you not getting the developer to install dropped kerbs at all junctions on the site?

I was shocked when visiting this site that not all junctions had dropped kerbs installed as new pavements are being constructed. The Disability Discrimination Act, now the Equalities Act, became legislation in 1995. Dropped kerbs should be fitted as standard and any lack of dropped kerbs should be picked up and required when assessing technical plans by the Highway Authority. If the developer is not constructing as per the approved technical highway plans, please go down there and get them to redo the pavements at their cost, otherwise you will find in time you will have to drop the kerbs at your cost once these roads are adopted. Putting in dropped kerbs at all junctions will assist parents with pushchairs, older people, as well as disabled people using mobility scooters like myself.
