Filling out a form to get a dropped kerb outside my house

lozzyholland Member Posts: 9 Listener
I need help filling out a complicated form, I want to drop the kerb outside my house.  I have asked the council for help with this but basically I am not disabled enough because I am not in a wheelchair, even though my disability is a mobility issue.  The form for this is very complicated and looks like I need to be a architect to complete.  It costs a lot to apply so I do not want to mess it up, also it says I need to check whether I need planning permission but no one will help me,

any help please?

    I want to drop our kerb but the application form is so complicated.  Is there any organisation or person that can help me with form filling,  I have tried talking to my council but there is nothing they can do.  and because I am not in a wheelchair the council won't help me even though the only reason why I am not wheelchair bound is because I refuse to be in one and keep fighting to keep my legs going.  

    Any help will be appreciated

    Hi @lozzyholland Have you tried contacting your local CAB to see if they could help? :)

    You need to speak to your council and get the contact details, for their approved list of contractors.

    Contact one of them and ask for a site visit and they will help you fill in the form.

    It can be complicated, depending on the road in front of your house.

    The council will only allow their approved contractors to do the work.

    Hi @lozzyholland, I also would be in touch with CAB to see if they can provide support, what about a social worker or health care professional who could provide evidence for the dropped kerb? I also have found this on the government website which may be helpful :)
