Dropped Kerb regulations...

Just had my whole street re-paved and houseowners were invited to have their driveways extended at the same time for a discounted rate. Many have done this and their new drives are totally dropped all the way along the front of their homes.
I had mine extended some years ago and paid full whack yet my driveway extention was limited and not allowed fully across. While these works were going on I asked the contracted workman if he was going to extend my kerb drop likewise since I had already paid for an extention. I was told to pay or contact Barnet (he also asked for a backhander, but that's another story).
Now to cut a long story short, the guy at Barnet is claiming my driveway is already at it's maximum width allowance. According to him the width of the drop includes the sloping kerb edgings at the side as well. Is this the case? How can you include the sloped edging when it cannot be driven over?

They are lower than the original kerb. Therefore it would seem to me that they have been dropped.
