    @Bryher.  i am not sure if I have the right thread here but hopefully, if not, you may be able to guide me to the right place.  I am disabled and get higher rate mobility.  I am 66 and my husband is 68.  We have been offered a council bungalow which is great as it has all the adaptions I need but for one thing,  the parking is on the road with a fair distance to walk tothe front of the bungalow.  We dont have any savings just our pensions coming in.  Would we be entitled to get assistance to get the kerb dropped so we can park near to the bungalow.  We really want this bungalow and this is the only downside to it.  I have read somewhere that the council have a duty of care to help because of I am disabled but I really want to be certain.  Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you
