I would like to apply for access across the kerb to my house (a dropped kerb)

Costs and timescales

The Council will consider your application based on the current dropped kerb policy, the individual details of your property and any other safety or planning issues that may be applicable.

The cost of constructing a dropped kerb depends on the:

  • size of the proposed kerb
  • level of traffic management needed at the individual site

This cost will be in addition to the non-refundable application fee of £103.

You will receive a quote based on what the Council has approved following the surveyors site visit. This may differ from what you have applied for.

When applying for a dropped kerb, you should consider the following timescales:

  • 2 months is the period a quote is valid for
  • 6 weeks is the period from payment of the quote to completion

Circumstances outside of the Council's control may increase these times.
