• You must have at least 6m from the front boundary of your home to the wall of your home so that you can have a 5m long drive with space to walk round the back of your car
  • The hardstanding must be 3m wide, unless laid alongside a path, in which case it can be a minimum of 2.5m
  • The maximum size of any hardstanding (unless specifically approved by NEDDC/Rykneld Homes) is 18m2
  • The gradient of the hardstanding can be no more than 1 in 12 – this means that the difference in height between the front and back of a 5m drive can be no more than 416mm.
