Drop Kerbs

Parking outside your home can cause stress for many. If you have to purchase a permit, it could also be a financial burden. It can be hard to find parking spaces near your home, especially in urban areas. Dropped kerbs are required if you want to drive on your property.

This alteration must be made to any driveway that leads to a public highway. It allows vehicles to cross the pavement between a driveway or road. If you want to drive across the pavement onto your property, it is legal to have one. A Kerb Drop or Vehicle Crossover is a great way to improve your property's accessibility and to prevent people from parking on your driveway. According to UK Law, driveway access is allowed only if you intend to drive your vehicle onto your driveway from a highway. You must obey the law and not cross the footway. You are violating the law by doing so and may face enforcement action. Sometimes, the pavement will need to be strengthened in front of the building.

A huge increase in off-street parking is a result of people dropping kerbs to create car parkig areas at the front of their homes.

According to multiple surveys, estate agents view off-street parking as a benefit that increases a property’s market value. This has led to an increase in planning applications for Vehicle Crossings.

While adding car parking space to your front garden might increase your property’s market value, there are many other things you should consider, not to mention the environmental effects and flooding.

Rainwater cannot soak into the ground if you replace a front yard with hard standing. This is a common practice that increases flooding risk so it’s important to include drainage in your plans.

If you want to remove the curb from your home to allow cars to cross the pavement, planning permission is required. The pavement may need to have reinforcement to withstand the weight of cars and prevent damage to any water pipes or cables beneath. This is to ensure that the new access does not pose a danger to other road users.

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.

  • You must have enough space in your front yard to allow you to park your car fully on the property.
  • Minimum 4.8m must be from your front door; 6m if you have a garage or entrance in front.
  • Parking area must not exceed 2.4m in width
  • Your property should be at least 10 m from any road junction. It should also not be located more than 15 m from busy intersections or on primary roads.
  • It should be at least 1.5m from street lamps or other street furniture.
  • It must be compliant with visibility standards, which depend on the type of road.
  • To drain excess water, it is important to have adequate drainage.
  • Tree roots should not be removed.
  • You should not make the climb from your home to the road too steep.
  • Last but not least, you, the homeowner, must accept the kerb being removed. For instance, tenants cannot apply for their landlord’s rent.
