A dropped kerb is a great way of ensuring 24-hour access to your property for vehicles, as it prevents other road users from blocking the entrance. Keeping a car off-road can reduce insurance premiums. It also helps ease congestion on local roads.
Hampshire County Council is the highways authority and you will need to make an application to them for a dropped kerb.
H-bar access markings indicate the part of the roadway that should be kept clear of waiting vehicles to allow access to off-street premises or a private drive. The markings also indicate a convenient crossing place for pedestrians. In Eastleigh Borough, we issue a Penalty Charge Notice to vehicles found parking across a dropped kerb.
