What is a drop kerb?

A drop kerb (vehicle crossing) is the lowered access point that connects your driveway to the highway, allowing you to drive across the pavement to enter and exist the road. It is illegal to drive across the pavement from your driveway if you don’t have a dropped kerb.

In order to have a drop kerb installed you will need permission from Dorset Council Highways department. The kerb must be installed by an approved NRSWA Accredited contractor such as ourselves.

In some cases, you will also require planning permission to have a drop kerb installed. Please see our checklist which details some requirments of having a drop kerb installed
