Online forms: White bar marking application and payment
You can use this online form to apply and pay for white bar markings to be installed, however, it is important that any applicant understands that in providing white bar markings on the highway across a private driveway for the purpose of deterring obstructive parking, the council accepts no responsibility for the enforcement or any consequences that may arise from the lines. The cost of a white bar marking is £50.
White bar marking information and criteria
We decide whether a white bar marking can be installed using the following criteria
- Consideration will only be given to installing a marking where the turning of vehicles in or out of a driveway is a regular problem.
- Consideration will not be given to installing a marking where waiting restrictions (yellow lines) are already present or where other carriageway markings would conflict.
- If the access or driveway is shared with a neighbour, it will be necessary to obtain their agreement to having a white bar marking across both driveways. In these circumstances, the neighbour will also be required to pay the application fee and should therefore be consulted in advance of applying for such a marking.
