Apply for a dropped kerb licence

Dropped Kerbs (or 'Vehicle Crossings') are the construction of an access to a property from the public highway to allow vehicles in and out of private property.

These are usually required by households who wish to park their vehicle 'off road', but they can also be installed in commercial properties. In some instances planning permission is required, but in all instances highway authorisation is required.

Works must be carried out by an approved contractor who must hold relevant Public Liability Insurance. More details are contained in the Dropped Kerb (Vehicle Crossing) Application Guidelines (PDF) and the Dropped Kerb (Vehicle Crossing) Approved Contractors List (PDF)
