East Sussex County Council has allocated a certain amount of funding to provide dropped kerbs which will support accessibility. This funding has been prioritised to support access to either a specific service provision or improve journey conditions for those residents with disabilities (both physical and sensory), or those using buggys/prams, who are currently unable to access their local community provisions due to the lack of dropped kerbs.
If you would like to apply for a dropped kerb, please complete the Application Form for Dropped Kerbs. Please provide as much information as possible to allow us to accurately review your request. Once completed, please email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org completing the subject line as Dropped Kerb Application.
Please note, requests received will go through a prioritisation and review process which can take up to 3 months. This is where we look at the request and take into consideration the impact of the lack of dropped kerbs. We will consider questions such as:
Please note we will review all requests on their merit and there is no guarantee that we will be able to install the dropped kerbs as requested. Once a decision has been reached, you will be advised accordingly and if the application has been successful, the dropped kerb will be installed within 2 months.
