If your driveway is regularly blocked by parked cars it may be possible to request that a white access protection marking are painted onto the road.

To apply for an access protection marking you must confirm that:

  • there are no parking restrictions outside the house, for example bus stops or yellow lines
  • there is a driveway and access is via a dropped kerb pavement

An access protection marking will only be painted to the same width as the dropped kerb driveway.


The current charge for this service is:

  • £175.62 for a single Driveway (no charge for people with disabilities)
  • £351.24 Double Driveway (no charge for people with disabilities)
  • the cost to mark a commercial crossing will vary depending on size
