Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3349297.
I asked for a dropped kerb to be applied to the pavement outside Canford Green NN18 0DQ a few years ago, as I am disabled, there are other disabled people in the street, this was carried out. Northampton council said that they would put double yellow lines at the dropped kerb to stop people parking over it, it was then said that finances were not available for this. A white line has been put on the road outside 70/72 Glastonbury road, Corby to aid parking this is not even 100 yards from Canford Green why is his allowed when there is no dropped kerb and there was no money available for the double yellow lines at the dropped kerb Canford Green?

I cannot comment on the history, although we would not normally use double yellow lines in this situation. We would normally offer a white I bar marking, to highlight that access is required and vehicles should not obstruct the dropped kerb. We will order a white line marking for this kerb in the new financial year. At this stage I cannot give a timescale, but most road markings are done over the summer period. The similar marking further along the road is a disabled parking space, for which a fee is charged.
