The ‘H’ road marking is used to discourage other drivers from parking across or blocking your drive or property access road. The markings are only advisory and are not legally enforceable in the same way that yellow lines are, but they have successfully prevented blocked driveways and access roads at many locations throughout Sheffield. 


You need to make a non-refundable payment of £75 with your application. This doesn't guarantee that your application will be accepted. If your application is accepted then you'll make a further payment to cover the cost of providing the road markings.

Current costs are:

  • £75 application fee
  • £90 cost of road marking
  • Total cost £165

These charges are reviewed annually and are subject to change.

How to apply

You will need to complete the application form and return it to: Traffic Regulations, Howden House, 1 Union Street, Sheffield, S1 2SH

You can pay for your application by sending a cheque in the post with your completed form or choose to pay by debit card on your form and we'll be in touch to make the payment.

It could take up to 12 weeks for your application to be processed and up to another 12 weeks for our contractor to paint your road markings.
