Apply for a dropped kerb

There are a number of changes we can make to pavements in Newcastle to make them more accessible, dropped kerbs can be installed on the edge of a pavement at appropriate crossing points to allow access for wheelchair users and those pushing prams or pushchairs to cross the road.

To apply for a dropped kerb, you will need to complete an Envirocall form. Once you have submitted your form, we will contact you to discuss whether your request is possible.
