'Dropped kerbs' and 'crossovers' help vehicles access properties where an entrance point is adjacent to a pavement.

Apply for a dropped kerb

If you wish to have a new dropped kerb installed at your property, or make improvements to an existing access point, you'll need permission from us and must complete the relevant application:

Return your application to the Streetworks team, along with a plan showing the preferred location of the proposed crossing.

Please note:

  • we'll endeavour to process your application within 2 weeks
  • permission lasts for 12 months
  • you must use a contractor approved by us to carry out these works
  • we'll provide details of approved contractors on successful application

Do not enclose any payment with your application - if permission is granted, we'll send you an invoice for £143.00 (which is non-refundable).

Tacit consent

Not all applications fall under 'tacit consent' parameters, due to reasons of public interest.

If tacit consent applies, then you can act as if your application has been granted if we do not respond within a specified time after the confirmed receipt of your application.

Tacit consent does not apply to this application, therefore it is in the public interest that we process your application before it can be granted.

In this case:

  • you cannot assume permission will be given
  • we will contact you within 14 days to acknowledge receipt of your application
  • if you have not heard from us within 14 days, please contact us to check the status of your application
