It is an offence to cross the footway from the road with a motor vehicle without one.

Frequently asked questions
How soon does an inspector attend to measure up for a dropped kerb?
When the request for a dropped kerb has been received by the council an inspection usually takes place within 3 to 4 weeks of your request.
How soon after the inspector visits is the quotation sent out?
The quotation usually goes out within 10-15 days after the inspection by 2nd class post.
When will the work on the dropped kerb begin?
Works usually commence on site within 2 to 3 months of payment being received by the council. Payment is by an invoice we send to you once you accept the quotation.
Can I pay for my dropped kerb by instalments?
Yes, in certain circumstances you can pay by instalments but this is by agreement with our finance section. The account needs to be paid in full up the the 31st March of the year the payment plan is set up before any work can be carried out.
Can I put a dropped kerb in or do I have to go through the Council?
Customers cannot put in dropped kerbs themselves.
Once I have paid for the drop crossing and it is constructed do I own it?
No, the payment to the council just allows you the legal right to cross the highway and does not entitle you to any legal ownership, this is still with Doncaster Council.
