Do I need a dropped kerb?

If you need to drive a vehicle over the public footpath onto your Burnley driveway, you’ll need to install a dropped kerb.

A dropped kerb allows vehicles to cross the pavement from the road to a driveway and it is a legal requirement to have a dropped kerb in Burnley if you want to drive across the pavement onto your property.

Do you need planning permission?

You will need to apply to your local council for permission to install a dropped kerb before we can commence any of the physical work. If you prefer, we can do this for you on your behalf.



Block paving is an excellent surface material for pathways. Whilst for pathways you generally won’t be able to add circular designs or swirls, you do have endless colour options from which to choose. Maintenance for block paving is low, but you may find over time that weeds and moss grows between the cracks of the bricks. This can be remedied in a matter of seconds, and the blocks themselves won’t fade with time. With traditional paving stone pathways, you increase the chances of weeds and you also run the risk of them breaking if an excessive amount of pressure is applied. Block paved pathways are much more durable and hard wearing in comparison, and the smaller sized stone offers a far better support structure. As each block is so small, you can really design a pathway any way you like – curved pathways as an example are quite popular, so you could have a block paved path running through your garden or even from your front door to your driveway.


Block paved driveways remain one of the most popular choices for homeowners installing a new driveway. The stones themselves have ample grip and this is ideal for when it comes to winter. They don’t get slippery when wet and you’ll not need to worry about vehicle weight breaking the stones. Some people think paving slabs is a good option for a driveway, but this is rarely recommended – flags can and do crack much easier than block paving and flagging doesn’t stand up to weight very well. Block paving however doesn’t present you with this concern and you will also find that it can support large vehicles as well. Design options are endless, with intricate design options available and a wide range of different colours.


For patios, block paving is probably the best choice available. Many people believe that wood decking is the better option when it comes to outside flooring but it unquestionably has several problems. Wood is likely to rot over time and is susceptible to mites and other forms of infestation, therefore regular maintenance is needed when you install a wooden deck in your garden. With block paved patios in Burnley, the only maintenance required is the little moss which may grow between the cracks, other than this a block paved patio is virtually maintenance free. Block paving is a superb choice for those who want a low maintenance solution for their outdoor flooring.
