GUERNSEY’S planning authority has been accused of ignoring disability issues.
John Millns made the claim to a planning appeals panel after the Environment Department refused him permission to create vehicular access at his home, Laburnum, 1, Colborne Place, Queen’s Road, St Peter Port.
The panel was told how Mr Millns had brought his parents to live in Guernsey in 2007. Both were 83, his father was wheelchair-bound and his mother suffered from dementia. Care workers needed to visit twice daily and the only parking was at a garage the appellant owned in Mount Durand.
The house was on a different level to the road.
He wants to knock a hole in the wall on the Mount Row side of the property and create a turning point and parking for two vehicles.
