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. 


Download the relevant application form, complete it and send it to us with the correct payment. The address is on the form. Our current turnaround time for applications is between 4 and 6 weeks.

Planning permission

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.

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.
