Drives and driveways are a considerable investment. We are experienced installers of quality block-paving, working quickly to minimise the disruption to your access and parking. Watch us installing a new block paving driveway, York.
A solid foundation is key. We always excavate to the correct depth, laying the blocks over a screened grit sand, over a mechanically compacted limestone sub-base. Giving your drive the correct gradient, installing drainage where required, ensures correct water run-off.

Planning laws for household driveways
On 1 October 2008 new rules applied for householders wanting to hard surface over their front gardens. If the surface to be covered is more than five square metres, you are required to get 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 do 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.
No retrospective planning consent is needed for existing driveways and hard surfaces.
