How much will it cost? | Apply for a dropped kerb | Birmingham City Council

How much will it cost?

We charge a £95 (non-refundable) application fee, which includes inspecting the proposed kerb location. The typical cost of a standard width crossing is approximately £1,400 to £3,500; this includes the admin fee of £273, materials and labour, but not any additional works or labour (such as moving cables, trees, street furniture, utility boxes etc) which may increase the cost up to £6,000 or more. Work can only be carried out by Birmingham City Council authorised contractors and approved suppliers.

Each application is priced individually based on measurements and work involved in the construction. You can apply for a joint dropped kerb with your neighbour and share the application fee and quote, or you can submit separate applications and we can arrange for the construction to take place at the same time.

We are not able to take payment for dropped kerbs in instalments. You must pay in full before the construction work can take place.

Residents who are blue badge holders may be eligible to receive a discount on the cost of constructing a standard 2.75m width dropped kerb at the address where the badge or benefit is registered. If you wish to apply for this subsidy, please indicate this on the application form.

If you want to request a white advisory "H" marking or disabled bay advisory marking you can do this online on our new works page.

If you have any questions or need assistance completing your application please contact us.
