We are making changes to the way we manage planning applications that will come into effect on Thursday 1 November, 2018. Most users will not notice any big changes, but we hope there will be noticeable improvements in the speediness and consistency of the decisions made which will improve the service we provide.

Pedestrian dropped kerbs

We receive a lot of requests for dropped kerbs from parish and town councils in South Gloucestershire. These help people with mobility difficulties get down from the footway onto the road.

We give priority to schemes that are likely to benefit a larger number of mobility-impaired residents. For example in locations that are;

  • near shops or libraries
  • on routes to schools
  • near old peoples’ homes
  • anywhere where there are a higher number of wheelchair and mobility scooter users

If you know of any location where a dropped kerb would help you, please contact your local councillor or parish councillor.
