#938351 - 30th Mar 2015 9:28am Wirral Council Dropped Kerb Costs

I'm hoping to move house very soon and the house I'm buying doesn't have a driveway. I'm looking to get the kerb dropped by the council and a drive built on my front lawn. I would require it wide enough for two cars.
Does anyone know roughly how much the council charges for this and can I get it done cheaper by a local firm instead? Also, how long does it usually take them to do it?

Thanks,

Julie

We paid Wirral Council just under 1000 about 8 years ago. As I recall if you get somebody else to do it the council will want to check it and of course you need planning permission.This may help https://www.wirral.gov.uk/my-services/en...-guidance-notes

think question has been asked before on here.
best going to Wirral to get it straight from the horses mouth.
Don't think you can use any old contractor . Underground services to consider. should only be a couple days work

Most roads don't need planning permission for dropped kerbs, generally only classified or principal roads do.

It is usually cheaper to get an approved contractor to do the work than the council, you need to find a NRSWA accredited contractor, you may find this link of use https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/approved_contractors_wirral

Most council's provide a list of approved contractors, Wirral doesn't seem to.

This is an extract from the link I put in earlier
(g) NAME OF HIGHWAY - If you need a new vehicle access from a road onto your property, or you propose to alter an existing access to a highway a pavement crossing must be constructed at your expense. All work on the highway must be carried out by the Borough Engineer or his agent and if you receive Planning Permission you should write to the following address to make arrangements for the work to be carried out:

Interim Director of Technical Services

Cheshire Lines Building
Canning Street
Birkenhead
Wirral
CH41 1ND

Telephone (0151) 606 2004

Here is a link to the Wirral Council website to request a drop kerb. It is worth going through the process in order to get an idea of price, you do not have to proceed.
