Anyone any experience fo gettign theres done?

Im after the cheapest way to do it.

No idea where to start tho, will be fitting 2 cards in it.

Have decided to get it done before the cars take any more damage, i know the lil sheets that are doing it but powerless to do anything n the police need 2 witnesses.

New driveway or a few years in jail for murder.....ill take the driveway

Are you looking to do it yourself, or get someone in?

ive done a double driveway before with my girlfriends dad took us 3 days if i remember correctly and about £600 although that was just basic dig out, hardcore, concrete. also was done for a friends family so was on the cheap. obviously had to factor in renting mixer etc.

How is a driveway going to stop them doing things to your car?


It's going to have wood chip ;-)

This? oh and "cards" go on the drive, not in it! :whistling:
Don't forget if you put down a non porous surface you may need planning permission.

Your OP implies that doing the drive will stop the car getting damaged though?

im guessing at present he leaves his car on the roadside and thus having a drive it will be on his own property behind a gate possible and thus less likely to damage it.

its a known fact that a car in a drive is less likely to be targeted

i may be wrong & this might need clarification, but i think driveways now require planning permission from December 08. The reason i think this is the case is we were having an extension built & i was on about getting the drive block paved, but my builder mate said if i did, i was to do it before december as i would have to apply for planning permission & you cant just stick any old drive down it has to comply with certain regs.

like i said this would need clarifcation.

this is a good site for paving, Paving Expert.com

edit: just found this re planning permission Planning Portal.gov.uk

havent checked this link (so might be on about the same thing) but AFAIK you need planning permission to drop the kerb for access to the drive (unless you dont mind damaging your wheels everytime you put it away :))

It's not about wheels, it's about damage to underground pipes etc. As for the drive, it needs to be water permeable OR have a runoff INTO the garden ie away from the street.

We used good old scalpings packed well down onto hardcore and then about 20 tonnes of big (about 1cm sq) shingle on top. Don't use pea shingle as you'll be forever bringing it into the house in the tread of your shoes. In your situation in addition to being the cheapest option, not freezing in winter and being almost zero maintenance, you'll hear anyone walking on it at night which may help to keep your local unwants away.
