Despite requesting Lincolnshire County Council (no request should have to be made) that the height barriers at Wolla Bank, Marsh Yard, Huttoft Car Terrace and Chapel Six Marshes be opened, LCC failed to do so in breach of disability legislation.
As a result of LCC breaching disability legislation we had no option but to queue from 22.30 Friday 12 to 06.30 Sunday 14 September at the Wolla Bank height barrier in the hope that they would appear to open the height barrier. As a result of the unlawful conduct of LCC 140 vehicles were unable to park in Wolla Bank Car Park during this time.
I hereby give due notice to LCC that we request the height barriers to be opened from 06.00 to 22.00 each day to allow those who are registered disabled and require high sided vehicles, access to Wolla Bank, Marsh Yard, Huttoft Car Terrace and Chapel Six Marshes. If LCC fail to fulfil their legal requirement we will patiently queue. Any inconvenience caused is the liability of LCC.
We will continue to defend the rights of the disabled.
