Request a dropped kerb
To get your vehicle from the road and onto your drive you will need a properly constructed 'vehicular crossing', also known as a 'dropped kerb'. This is to prevent damage to the pavement and/or verge and protect underground pipes and cables.
Requesting a dropped kerb
If you want a dropped kerb outside your property you will need our approval.
You may also need to get planning permission from your local district council.
Who can install a dropped kerb?
You may employ a contractor of your choice to carry out these works, subject to them meeting certain requirements.
Your contractor will need to apply to us for a permit to alter the highway outside your property and we will inspect the work to ensure that it meets our specification.
How to get the work done
- request a dropped kerb online, selecting the 'access' option
- we will arrange for an officer to meet you at your property to fully advise you on your proposal (free of charge).
