An epidemic of dropped kerbs
PARKING: New analysis reveals a dramatic growth in off-road parking as residents apply for kerbs to be lowered to allow vehicles to access their property. Across the
UK, successful applications for the installation of dropped kerbs increased by 49 per cent between 2013 and 2015, accoding to Direct Line. One reason is the increase of onstreet parking restrictions. Local authorities across the UK are generating millions of pounds in revenue from dropped kerb applications. Some local authorities,such as Rochdale Council, do not charge for applications while Dorset County Council bills £267.50.
