ALONG Wisbech Road, workmen are improving pavements, gutters and access to premises. Well, not all along, since some improvement has been omitted outside number 11.

Here, the requisite lowered kerb to allow easier car access is not being provided despite a driveway and car having been in situ for at least fifteen years.

On querying this I was informed that as there wasn't one before, I can't have one now.

This is curious, because some houses with access but no car have this provision.

Also, the neat concrete lines delineating access to driveways certainly never existed before and yet they're being installed.

This rather sad state of affairs could easily be remedied now before the top layer of tarmac is applied, but I suppose no council is going to admit that this obvious requirement has been omitted either through error, oversight, incompetence or whatever.

I'm, told that my recourse is to make a costly application to the planners that might result in the lowered kerb being installed presumably at my expense, which as a pensioner I could not afford.
