“A dropped crossing (also known as vehicle access or dropped kerb) is necessary to prevent damage to both your vehicle and the pavement.
Should you regularly drive across a pavement without first providing a dropped crossing, the local Council has powers under the Highways Act to construct a dropped crossing or make good any damage to the pavement and recover the costs.
The local Council may grant permission for vehicle access to your property subject to the following conditions:
- Planning permission is required if your proposed access fronts a classified road
- A Street Works accredited contractor must be employed to undertake the works
- The appropriate fees must be paid”
M.A Hart are Street Works approved which means we’re legally accredited to drop kerbs on your behalf. And just for your additional peace of mind our experienced staff are qualified at both Supervisor and Operative levels on the Street Works licence.
As well as carrying out the works we can also speak to the council on your behalf, complete all the paperwork and ensure everything is in place so that work can commence as soon as possible.
