Driveways to individual dwellings
House drives are to meet the back of the footway at right angles, and should not deviate from this by more than 10°. Except in the case of type F and G streets and parking squares, a 1.5m x 1.5m pedestrian sight-splay is required behind a footway to give clear visibility above a height of 600mm to at least 1.8m. Vehicular access is not permitted across radius kerbs at junctions.
The minimum width for a drive serving a single dwelling is 3m. The drive in front of a double garage should be the width of the garage or a minimum of 5.5m for a length of at least 6m in front of the garage doors.
