What Is a Dropped Kerb
A dropped kerb enables vehicles to cross the public pavement (footway) to access a private driveway. It allows safe, off-road parking and could add value to your property.
The dropped kerb in Lincoln remains part of the public highway and is maintained by the council in Lincoln. Utility apparatus, such as electricity and phone equipment, within this area is maintained by the utility company (eg BT, Virgin Media, Western Power, etc).
The dropped kerb and access across the pavement do not become part of your land, and must not be used for parking vehicles. Overhanging or obstructing the public footway is an offence.
You will need room for a driveway of at least 4.75m (approx. 15′ 5″) in length on your property to park your vehicle. The driveway must be in place before a dropped kerb can be constructed.
