You will be required to make a planning application to your local council in order to be granted permission to build your driveway if it is over five square metres and are not using a permeable material. This is due to increased amounts of water that goes into the storm drains. Part of the process includes consulting the local transport and highways department.

Driveway Planning Permission Drawings

Planning a driveway and submitting a driveway planning application can seem daunting because of the overwhelming amount of information. Below are a few things to be considered.

1. Planning for Driveway Gates / Fences

You will need to apply for planning permission if you wish to erect or add to a fence, wall or gate and:


  • it would be over 1 metre high and next to a highway used by vehicles (or the footpath of such a highway); or over 2 metres high elsewhere; or

  • your right to put up or alter fences, walls and gates is removed by an article 4 direction or a planning condition; or

  • your house is a listed building or in the curtilage of a listed building.

  • the fence, wall or gate, or any other boundary involved, forms a boundary with a neighbouring listed building or its curtilage.

2. Dropped Kerb Planning Permission / Vehicle Crossover Planning Permission

Usually when your vehicle leaves your property boundary. It must cross the pavement into the highway. This is when a vehicle crossover is included in the application and ultimately a dropped kerb planning application. This will allow you to access the highway from your property.

If you are making a new access into your garden across a footpath. You will need to obtain permission form the local council to drop the kerbs and the pavement may need strengthening. This is to protect any services that are buried below such as mains water pipes.

In high traffic areas. Councils may request that you must enter and leave your property in a forward gear. This means that you must have space available to turn the vehicle around inside your property boundary
