For each dropped kerb application, a fee of £142.50 will be charged to find out if it is possible to construct a dropped kerb at your property. This fee will include a site inspection to check the viability of your request. If the application is refused, a sum of £67 will be refunded
If planning permission is needed, it will cost an additional £230. As part of your application, you can apply for a 'pre-application enquiry' which will advise whether planning permission is likely to be granted. There is a £25 charge for this enquiry.
We will respond to your application within 10 working days.
Approved applications will be sent a self-construction pack. This includes the standard specifications for an approved dropped kerb and Licence agreement.
You can request a quotation from the Council to undertake the work. The Council charge a standard fee of £1,638 for a standard dropped kerb
You can also arrange your own contractor to carry out the work. We will check the work meets the agreed standards when it is complete.
