Please note, it is illegal to have a dropped kerb constructed by anybody other than ourselves or our approved contractors. 

Any dropped kerbs constructed by a non-approved contractor will be removed and the footway reinstated by us at your expense.  

Having a dropped kerb does not automatically mean your route to the road will allways be clear. Read our leaflet about the rules for parking by a driveway
