Dropped kerbs are more than simply a convenient method to bring your car into your driveway. There are legal necessities when adding additional off-street parking to your property.

However,  to proceed with a new driveway plan for your remodelling or self-build project, it is necessary to understand what dropped kerbs are, its benefit, and their regulations.

Throughout this article, A & A Construction Surfacing explains all you need to know about dropped Kerbs in Kent County and evaluates your prospects of obtaining approval for dropped kerbs.

What are Dropped Kerbs?

These are "kerbs," or stones that separate streets and sidewalks. They are constructed to lower their edges to make it easier for cars to cross the sidewalk and go into a driveway. They also make it simpler for people with pushchairs or wheelchairs to navigate from the road to the sidewalk or pavement.

What are the regulations regarding dropped kerbs?

Many individuals desire or require the ability to drive over a pavement from the road into one's property; yet, by law, this is only possible if the pavement has been lowered. Those who violate this law may be subjected to regulatory action of financial liability. They can be asked to pay a compensation fee to pedestrians who are struck or for possible disruption to the pavement and any destruction to electricity, gas, or water utilities under the pavement.

What are the benefits of dropped kerbs in Kent County?

Pedestrians and wheelchair users in Kent County can benefit from a lowered kerb since it helps them go about their normal activities. Dropped kerbs can also improve the appearance of a property or region by providing a more defined edge.

Also, if your driveway is made of tarmac, having an installed dropped kerb will assist in defining the boundary of your driveway and preventing vehicles from blocking it.

Lastly, a lowered kerb also offers additional drainage for precipitation. Since kerbs assist direct water away from your home and towards local drains, they are crucial if you live in a low-lying location susceptible to flooding.
