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.

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.
