I'd like to have my driveway excavated to slope down to the road all the way along. We're going to have twins and I'd like to be able to park the cars side by side but with adequate room between each to have doors open wide.
Any advice about what sort of work will be involved? I think it's beyond diy for me but I'd like to know what to listen out for when getting quotes.
ThanksImageImageImageImageImage

You need to contact your local authority. I think that you may find that you need planning permission for what you are proposing.
I understand that it can vairy from one authority to another.
Apprently, some authorities insist on the employment of their own Subcontractor and you foot the bill.

Good luck with it!

Thank you. Yes I'll need planning and consent for the drop curb. I think the L.A. will want their own doing the curb.
I wonder if builder or driveway trades would be best for the job?

I think a couple of quotes from both would be the way forward and perhaps start off discussions with the LA.
Let's know how you get on!

Cheers,
