Just had my whole street re-paved and houseowners were invited to have
their driveways extended at the same time for a discounted rate. Many
have done this and their new drives are totally dropped all the way
along the front of their homes.
I had mine extended some years ago and paid full whack yet my driveway
extention was limited and not allowed fully across. While these works
were going on I asked the contracted workman if he was going to extend
my kerb drop likewise since I had already paid for an extention. I was
told to pay or contact Barnet (he also asked for a backhander, but
that's another story).
Now to cut a long story short, the guy at Barnet is claiming my
driveway is already at it's maximum width allowance. According to him
the width of the drop includes the sloping kerb edgings at the side as
well. Is this the case? How can you include the sloped edging when it
cannot be driven over?
