A dropped kerb or vehicle access request allows you to access your driveway from across the pavement.
It is an offence to drive across a footpath to access your drive without our consent. It may cause damage to the footpath or the services underneath.
Before you apply, you must read the application for a dropped kerb guidance and:
- check the location of the crossover required at your property against the safety criteria
- ensure that no tree trunk exists within one metre of the proposed crossing
- ensure that no utility apparatus or street furniture exists within one metre of the proposed crossover
If we refuse your application because it does not meet the criteria, you will not receive a refund. We will only consider refunds in exceptional circumstances.
For advice about your application, email email@example.com.
The following types of access cost £457 each:
- new light-duty access dropped kerb
- new field access
- permission to reinstate existing access or raise kerbs
- extensions that exceed two metres to light duty access dropped kerbs
The following types of access cost £912 each:
- new heavy-duty access dropped kerb
- extensions that exceed two metres to heavy-duty access dropped kerbs
- both light and heavy-duty new dropped access kerb which includes a culvert or complex drainage. (If specialised technical advice is required from us an hourly rate will be charged)
The following types of access cost £228 each:
- extension to existing heavy-duty access dropped kerb (up to two metres)
- extension to light-duty access dropped kerb (up to two metres)
These fees will be reviewed annually and may be subject to change.
