Dear Scarborough Borough Council,

I am looking into finding out about the location of pedestrian crossings in Scarborough. Please could you provide me with the following:

1) A list of all the different pedestrian crossings within Scarborough boundaries. Including the location of all formal crossings: Zebra, Toucan, Pegasus, Staggered Pelican/Puffin and Toucan crossings.

2) Information on the type of tactile paving used at each site.

3) A list of all lowered kerbs in the Scarborough district. Showing the location of each and paying particular attention to the ones intended for use as pedestrian crossing points.

4) The above would ideally include the use of the Geocoordinate system information of each site, but also the street name and location.

The information will be used to provide a complete map of the District to aid in the navigation of Scarborough for people with limited mobility or requiring the use of a wheelchair.

Yours faithfully,

Evan Howle
