Information relating to the application process for a dropped kerb
A dropped kerb or vehicle crossing is the dip in the path and kerb that lets you drive up to your house.
If you live in the district you should apply to Kent County Council to have one installed.
There's a self-assessment form to see if your road is suitable for a dropped kerb.
Search the list of Kent streets.
To search for your street in the document, press Ctrl and F together, then type in your street name and press return. Classified streets have a letter and number in front of them (for example, A262).
If your road is classified, you will need to get planning permission
Although dropped kerbs are generally covered by householder permitted development rights ie you won't ordinarily need to make a planning application, if your road is classified or another development constraint applies, you can apply for planning permission online via the Planning Portal.
Within your online application form, there will be a section to provide details of the dropped kerb.
View our planning pages for advice and guidance on the process of applying for planning permission.
