Dropped Kerbs

What permission do I need?

The construction of a dropped kerb (or vehicle crossover), to provide vehicular access to a private driveway from the public road, will always need the consent of the Leicestershire County Council Highway Authority.

Planning permission will also be required from Melton Borough Council if;

  • the dropped kerb is not being provided in connection with other permitted development, such as a hard standing.

If you have obtained the consent of the Leicestershire County Council Highway Authority and you have established that the road is classified or not being provided in connection with other permitted development you can apply for Planning permission using the button below.
