Apply and pay for a new dropped kerb/ vehicle access

How to apply and pay for a new or extension to an existing dropped kerb/vehicle access and check what permissions you need first.

What's a dropped kerb?

A dropped kerb (also known as a vehicle access, pavement crossover or driveway access) allows vehicles to enter a driveway or parking area from the road without damaging the highway. This is by the lowering of kerbs and/or the strengthening of pavements and/or verges.

The highway can be the road, pavement or grass verge/bank. You legally need permission from us to work on the highway.
