Dropped kerbs (pedestrian and vehicular)
Vehicular dropped kerbs (for driveway access)
Provision of vehicle accesses is a function of the county council (as Highway Authority) with the cost of the vehicle access being met by the property owner/occupant who requests the access. If you wish to apply for a vehicular access you can do so by email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 0300 555 1388 or write to:

Assistance for disabled people
Subject to budget availability, the borough council will part fund the provision or modification of a vehicular dropped kerb for disabled people who are in possession of a valid blue badge. This would cover all alterations to the highway kerb, footway and verge but not the provision or modification of a hardstanding area within the property. The borough council will usually contribute up to 50% of the cost of providing a vehicular dropped kerb if a disabled person holds a valid blue badge.
Separate to the assistance the Engineering team may be able to provide, we also offer a Disabled Facilities Grant. The grant provides funding for the adaption of homes to meet the needs of the occupant with a disability and could include overcoming any obstacles that prevent the disabled person from moving freely into the property.
