Councils have had their budgets significantly reduced over the last few years and this is set to continue. This year alone we are having to make significant savings to make sure we live within our means.
We look after 6,600 km of roads in Somerset and have to very carefully prioritise works in line with the limited budgets available. This involves making some very difficult decisions to make sure our resources are directed where there is clear evidence of significant problems or incidents.
Because of this we are not currently able to consider applications for new disabled parking bays or refurbishments of existing disabled parking bays.
