Dropped kerbs

We have a protocol to make sure all dropped kerbs for vehicular property access are implemented as safely as possible.

If you would like to install or widen a dropped kerb at your property please Icon for pdf download the dropped kerb application form [602.88KB] and return it to us using the address listed below.

Before you apply, please be aware that:

  • there is a £200 fee for the assessment we carry out after we receive your form - this payment should be made by cheque and included with your application
  • there is no formal appeals process as all decisions are made within our agreed protocol
  • we ask you to provide the following where appropriate:
    • a detailed sketch with dimensions of your proposed driveway and dropped kerb
    • written permission from housing associations or land owners where applicable
    • evidence of planning permission if your property is on a classified (A, B or C) road

No work should commence without our written permission.
