Lincolnshire County Council has released new, clear guidance on how to install a dropped kerb outside your property.
If you are looking to install a dropped kerb outside your property, you should think ABCD and:
- Apply online through the council's website
- Book your contractor, choosing from the council's contractor list
- Crack on with constructing the dropped kerb to the council's specification
- Don't pay twice; you are liable if your contractor fails to install the dropped kerb correctly
The advice has been published after an incident where a contractor – not on the council's list – failed to construct the new kerb to the right standards, and the homeowner had to pay again to have it fixed.
