Guernsey is ‘behind times on disability issues’
Thursday 29th November 2012, 5:00PM GMT.
THE island is 20 years behind the UK when it comes to dealing with disability issues, according to one property owner.
John Millns was speaking after a planning appeals tribunal dismissed his challenge to a planning refusal to let him create vehicular access to his home.
His father is wheelchair bound and his mother suffers from dementia.
His home has no vehicular access and is on a different level to the road.
He said the planning authority was oblivious to disability issues.
‘There’s no law, no concern and no interest, not just here but all over the island and it all stems from planning.’
