Apply for an Access Protection Marking

You can apply for us to paint an Access Protection Marking (white ‘H’ marking) in front of your driveway, to deter other motorists from parking in front of it. Please note that the marking is advisory and not legally enforceable.

The marking will be painted along the length of the dropped kerb, adjacent to the driveway, and up to one kerb stone beyond. The Traffic Management Team’s decision is final.

To apply for this service, you will need:

  • proof of residency (copy of a bill stating your name and address)
  • £220 fee for the marking.

For no extra cost, we can cover two access points providing they are immediately next to each other. This can include your neighbour's dropped kerb if you have their consent.

Applications will be grouped and progressed at regular intervals throughout the year. Please be aware that there may be a delay between making your request and any work being completed.

If you already have an Access protection marking and wish to have it refreshed, please contact the traffic management team by email.
