Rookery court/spring gardens marlow

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 07:27, Thursday 17 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

I would like to bring your attention to a restriction in access for the disabled.

At the junction of Rookery Court there is no dropped kerb on the south side. This prevents anyone in a wheelchair or mobility scooter from using the pavement.

Access through to Dean Street can only be obtained by using the road. Meaning joining the road on the wrong side, opposing direction of traffic, and on this dangerous corner. At the end of the cul-de-sac Herons Place there is no dropped kerb again.

The lack of dropped kerb at this point is preventing right of access for the disabled.

"Part III of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) gives disabled people a right of access to goods, facilities, services and premises. These rights are being phased in over the period 1996 to 2004. Since 1996, it has been unlawful for service providers to treat disabled people less favourably than other people for a reason related to their disability. "

I would appreciate your view on this matter.
