R4U has announced that it in collaboration with Saffron Walden Town Council residents are being consulting on locations to implement new kerb drops in Saffron Walden after securing funds from Essex County Council.
R4U’s Cllr Paul Gadd said:
“Last year we consulted with residents to ask them how they’d like access in the town improved. One of the suggestions was more dropped kerbs to improve road crossing for pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. We’re happy to say that we’ve secured the first money from Essex County Council which will allow 10 dropped kerbs to be created.”
“We’re now asking residents to help us prioritise locations. We’ve had good responses on the R4U Facebook page and schemes for the High St, Hill St, Market Hill, Church St, East St, London Rd and Audley End village have been suggested. We are asking for residents to vote for the ones they would like to see or suggest their own at www.Residents4U.org/kerb or send their suggestions to the Town Council. Following that we’ll submit them to Essex County Council.”
Residents are requested to submit their comments and suggestions by Friday May 20th.
About Residents for Uttlesford
Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) is the local party of towns and villages. The party was formed by a number of residents’ groups in north Essex to provide a strong, independent voice for the views of the residents of the area. The party believes that on local issues locals should decide, not the Westminster party whip.
Uttlesford residents achieved substantial election gains in May 2015. Election successes were based on the group’s localism advocacy platform and the desire to create and implement long range strategic and sustainable plans for their area.
Residents for Uttlesford has 11 Uttlesford District Councillors and many Town and Parish Councillors. It is the Second Party at Uttlesford District Council and the first party at Saffron Walden Town Council.
