P&D Driveways are expert driveway and crossover installers. A vehicle crossover, commonly referred to as a dropped kerb, often goes hand in hand with a new driveway. There are times however when an existing crossover requires extending, or you need a brand new one constructing from scratch.
We offer a range of kerb alterations for both residential and commercial clients in Hastings and the surrounding county of East Sussex. P&D are local authority approved contractors of vehicle crossovers, so we have the knowledge and expertise to correctly install dropped kerbs in-line with local authority regulations. As experts in this specialist area, we can provide you with impartial advice, assist you with the application for consent and help when dealing with your local council. Every vehicle crossover we install is fully insured and guaranteed.
Installing a vehicle crossover allows you to legally drive over a footway to access your driveway or property. It is worth noting that if you are entering the driveway from a highway then it is legal to cross the footway without a local authority approved dropped kerb. However, driving over a footway without a vehicle crossover can cause damage to your car as well as the surface of the footway and pipes underneath.
When a vehicle crossover is installed correctly, it not only lowers the kerb but strengthens the pavement to avoid any damage being caused to the surface or utilities below. It is essential that you use a professional and approved contractor, to ensure the work is carried out in-line with local authority regulations. In addition to this, there are a range of applications and procedures that need to be adhered to, these alter dependent upon the local authority you are within. Planning permission is also something that needs to be considered. P&D Driveways are approved contractors for East Sussex County Council, equipping us with detailed knowledge of the applications and procedures that need to be adhered to in order to legally install a vehicle crossover within East Sussex.
