Do you need planning permission for a new driveway?
Planning Permission for your new driveway
If you are looking for a new resin driveway but worried about planning permission, then there are some specific rules that apply to householders. We will take a look at these requirements and how The Yorkshire Resin Company cover everything for you with the materials used. Remember it’s vitally important to do your research into the company you choose.
What planning permission is needed?
Householders will not need to apply for planning permission for a new resin driveway or replacing an existing driveway of any size if the material you use are permeable, which of course all our resin surfaces are. You can view the specifications here. This means that when water hits the resin driveway the water is allowed to pass through and drain naturally.
Note: There are some allowances to this, these include converted houses.
Planning permission to think about?
Your new resin driveway is planning permission free as we only use the very best of materials, what you may need planning permission for and what is worth thinking about are things such as fences, walls and gates that maybe being thought about to complement the new driveway.
Some drop kerbs may also need planning permission so it is worth investigating this further.
If the new driveway is making a new access across a footpath then it is best to check with the local council for their drop kerb policy and planning permission, this is because the pavement may need reinforcing to make it stronger, taking the weight of the vehicle, as under the pavement may be cables and pipes.
