Drop Kerbs


Drop Kerbs

Thornbury Surfacing is a council approved provider of Drop Kerbs solutions. A Drop Kerb makes it possible for vehicles to cross a pavement in order to access a driveway from a road. Please note that you will need to obtain planning permission from your local council before Drop Kerb work can be carried out – this can typically take 6-8 weeks.

A dropped kerb (or vehicle crossover) is the dipped or lowered kerb that allows you to access your driveway from the road by driving across a pavement or grass verge.

A licence (planning permission) is required to create a dropped kerb in front of your drive or hardstanding from your local council.

Did you know?

It is an offence to drive across a footway to access your property without a legally constructed dropped kerb. This is because it may cause damage to the footway or the services/utilities (gas, electric, water) underneath.

We will carry out a site visit and survey to assess the work and provide you with a detailed quotation.

As part of our service, we will make the relevant planning applications on your behalf so you have nothing to worry about and can look forward to parking legally on your property.
