Hi - we're renovating and extending a house that had a ridiculously sloping driveway. Part of the condition of our planning is that we provide 2 car parking spaces. I want to reduce the slope of the drive and widen it to provide 2 spaces - but I have 2 questions:
How big does a parking space have to be? I reckon this will be 4.8m long at one side down to 4.6m at the other by c6m wide. Width isn't a limiting factor so we could lengthen one by making it diagonal.
The other thing is the angle - at present it drops c 800mm in 4800mm - so c 16% - I think we can reduce this to c500mm in 4800mm - or just over 10%.
Thoughts? Are there any rules about this? Google reveals nothing concrete.
