10 Jul 2019

If you’ve never considered updating your driveways in Wolverhampton, then you are sure to have plenty of questions.
Here at Cobblecrete we have been providing the finest patterned concrete driveways for over 25 years and have a team of experts ready to answer all queries.

For our latest blog we are going to look at a couple of the questions we get asked a lot and provide answers for them because we’re generous like that.

Do I Need Planning Permission for My New Driveway?

Generally, you won’t need planning permission if your new or replacement concrete driveway is designed to let rainwater drain naturally via or a border or your lawn.
When you will need planning permission is if you want to cover an area of more than five metres or you plan to have a non-permeable driveway installed; meaning your driveway’s rainwater will run onto the nearby roads which won’t impress your local authorities.

The only other instance where planning permission may be necessary is if you live in a listed building as you will require listed building consent. Similarly, if you live in a conservation area you won’t be able to make certain changes and alterations without prior permission.
We would recommend talking to your local planning office to double-check before starting work on your new driveway design.

Will a new Driveway Increase the Value of My Home?

Having a high quality and durable driveway installed by Cobblecrete can add between 5 and 10 per cent of value to your home; dependant on your location.
Factors that affect the value are things such as the number of cars you can fit on your drive and how well it blends with your property and surroundings.
