Drop Kerbs Bicknacre

Parking spaces can be difficult to find, especially in urban areas.
If you wish to drive on your property, you need to drop the kerb so any driveway leading to a public highway must be altered.
It allows vehicles to cross pavement between driveways or roads. It is legal to have one if you wish to drive across the pavement onto your property.
Drop Kerbs in Bicknacre and Vehicle Crossovers are great ways to make your property more accessible. They also help to keep people from parking in front of your driveway.
The UK Law states that driveway access is only permitted if your intention to drive your vehicle onto your driveway is via a highway.
Respect the law and do not cross the footway. If you do this, you may be subject to enforcement action.
Sometimes the pavement in front of a building will need to be reinforced.

Why choose block paving for your driveway?

Bicknacre Drop Kerbing Contractors

People are creating dropped kerbs in Bicknacre and the surrounding areas and creating car parking areas in front of their homes, resulting in a huge increase in off-street parking.

Multiple surveys have shown that estate agents consider off-street parking a benefit that can increase a property’s value. This has resulted in an increase of planning applications for Vehicle Crossings in Bicknacre.

Although adding a car park to your front garden may increase the property’s value, there are other factors you need to consider, including flooding and environmental effects.

If you replace your front garden with hard surface, rainwater will not soak into the ground. This is a common practice which increases flooding risk, so we would make sure drainage is included in your plans.

Planning permission is required if you wish to remove the kerb from your property in Bicknacre to allow cars to cross it. To withstand cars’ weight and protect water pipes and cables below, the pavement might need reinforcement. This is done to ensure that other road users are not at risk from your new Drop Kerb in Bicknacre.

It is worth first confirming if consent will be given. Here is a list of important considerations of which Planning permission will be denied if any of these criteria are not met.

  • Your front garden must be large enough to permit you to park your car completely on the property.
  • You must keep your front door at least 4.8m away; you can go up to 6m if there is a garage or entrance to the front.
  • The maximum parking area should not exceed 2.4m in breadth
  • At least 10m from any junction should be your property. It shouldn’t be more than 15m away from busy intersections and on primary roads.
  • It should be at least 1.5m away from street lamps and other street furniture.
  • It must comply with the applicable visibility standards. These standards vary depending on the type of road.
  • It is essential to have sufficient drainage in order to drain excess water.
  • Tree roots shouldn’t be cut.
  • It is important not to make the ‘climb’ from your house to the road too steep.
  • Last, but not least, you, as the homeowner, must agree to the kerb being taken down. Tenants cannot, for example, apply on their landlord’s behalf.
