Do I need planning permission for my new driveway?
No, From 1 October 2008 new rules apply for householders wanting to hard surface over their front gardens. If the surface to be covered is more than five square metres, you will need planning permission for laying traditional, impermeable driveways that do not control rainwater running off onto roads. This will apply to new driveways, drive extensions or drive replacements. You will NOT need planning permission if the surface to be covered is less than five square metres or if the new surface is permeable or porous or if a traditional surface is laid and the rainwater is directed to a lawn or border to drain naturally or if it is directed to a soakaway via a drainage channel. An estimated 70% of existing driveways already drain in a sustainable way.
Does block paving sink?
No, as long as the driveway is constructed correctly to the correct specification. Most driveways don't have the correct depth of hardcore and have not been compacted enough, which causes the driveway to sink.
Do you need access to my house?
No, all our tools are powered from our generators.
When do I pay for the job?
Not until the job is completely finished.
Do I need to be in for you to complete the work?
No we can complete all the work while you are out.
How long will it be before I can use my new driveway?
Practically straight away after completion.
