Question for written answer P-001733-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Maria Lidia Senra Rodríguez (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Poor accessibility in Abeledo
 Answer in writing 

Pilar Fernández López lives in Abeledo, in the municipality of Abadín (Lugo, Spain). Ms Fernández López has reduced mobility: her degree of disability is 84%. This means she has to use a wheelchair to get around.

Over the last 20 years, the path in front of her home has been resurfaced a number of times. It is now 12 centimetres higher than the entrance to her home, making access very difficult.

In 2013, she was alarmed to learn that the path was to be resurfaced once again, so she lodged a written complaint with the local council asking for the barrier to be removed. All these years later, she has still not received a reply, and the matter has not been resolved. A complaint about the situation has been submitted to the Galician Ombudsman, and a large support network has been set up by local people.

1. Does the Commission not take the view that this situation constitutes a breach of the commitments made in the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020?

2. Having regard to Articles 1, 21 and 26 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, Articles 10 and 19 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, is the Commission intending to take action on this matter?
