If you want to drop a kerb to make it easier for vehicles to access your site (for example home, business) you need our permission first. 


We charge £90 for domestic applications and £190 for light industrial applications. 

If the location of the proposed dropped kerb is on a classified road, in a conservation area or for a listed building you will first need planning permission. Find out how to apply for planning permission.

Doing the work

If we give permission you should arrange for a qualified highway contractor to drop the kerb. All works are carried out at your own expense. Highway contractors must have Street Works qualifications and £2million public liability insurance.
