Pedestrian dropped kerbs are where the pavement is gently sloped to the same level as the road to help people get down from the footway to cross the road.

They include tactile paving which helps visually impaired people to identify a crossing point.

Schemes are prioritised in locations that are:

  • near shops or town centres 
  • on routes to schools 
  • near retirement homes 
  • anywhere where there are a higher number of wheelchair and mobility scooter users 

If you want to request a new pedestrian dropped kerb or improve an existing dropped kerb location you can email us at with a location reference and photos if possible.

Requests are reviewed on a yearly basis and are prioritised based on need.

The number of mobility dropped kerbs that can be built in a given financial year is subject to budget availability and available resources.
