Applying for a dropped kerb

When you apply for a dropped kerb there is a non-refundable £103 application fee. When making your application please take care to read the terms and conditions on the first page of the application form.

Upon receiving your application we will come and inspect the location and send you a quote for the works.

Once we have received payment for the full amount the dropped kerb will be installed within the estimated time frame given in the quote.

Apply for a dropped kerb

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 always be clear. Read our leaflet about the rules for parking by a driveway
