Apply for an access protection marking (APM)
An Access Protection Marking (APM) is a white line painted in front of a kerb which has been lowered to allow vehicle access, for example driveways. APMs are not legally enforceable but can help deter inconsiderate parking which restricts or blocks access.
Installation costs £46. If the access is wider than 10 metres, each additional metre costs £1. APMs will not be installed until payment is received. We will assess your application before requesting payment.
If you are a Blue Badge holder there is no charge, provided you live at the address. You will need to provide your Blue Badge serial number.
An APM can only be installed in front of a dropped kerb, known as a vehicle crossover. To apply for a vehicle crossover, contact East Sussex Highways.
