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 roads@hants.gov.uk, phone 0300 555 1388 or write to:

Economy, Transport and Environment Department
Hampshire County Council
The Castle
SO23 8UD

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 and have no access to suitable off street parking. 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.
