Vehicular access dropped kerb
A vehicular access dropped kerb is provided to assist the residents and businesses getting their vehicles back on the road or in their driveway.
For parking enforcement purposes there are two types of dropped kerb:
- Dropped kerb that serves a single occupancy driveway
- Dropped kerb that serves multiple occupancy driveway or more than one driveway
Dropped kerb that serves a single occupancy driveway
Enforcement action can only be instigated at the request of the occupier of the premises.
A single occupancy driveway is a driveway used solely by one property and served by a dedicated dropped kerb, which is not used or shared by other properties.
Any resident, not previously registered, who finds their dropped kerb blocked by an inconsiderate motorist should:
By completing the Dropped Kerb Registration Form.
Once registered please phone the council's parking enforcement hotline on 01895 271 418, between the following hours:
- 06.00-22.00 (Monday to Saturday)
- 10.00-16.00 (Sundays and bank holidays).
They will then arrange for a Civil Enforcement Officer to visit the location and carry out appropriate enforcement.
Dropped kerb that serves multiple occupancy driveway or more than one driveway
A multiple occupancy driveway is a driveway used by more than one property (a) or served by a dropped kerb that is used or shared by more than one property (b). See below.
e.g. shared driveway, access to a block of flats or an office block
As more than one person may use this type of dropped kerb you cannot park across it even with the permission of the occupier.
We carry out regular borough wide enforcement against vehicles causing obstruction to this type of dropped kerb. This type of dropped kerb does not have to be register for enforcement purposes.
