Driveways

We pride ourselves on building all customer’s beautiful quality driveways.

Gary Cooper driveways are built to last. We use our expert knowledge of soil and landscape conditions to thoroughly prepare your site, ensuring a solid, robust ,practical and aesthetically pleasing result.

We can build your dream driveway in a variety of styles and materials. It will add value to your home, be easy to keep clean, and provide safe access and easy parking. Your new driveway will be able to take a weight of up to 18 ton.

Since October 2008, it has been a legal requirement to incorporate Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) into any front garden or driveway over 5 m2 that is being paved over – even if you are only replacing an existing driveway.  This is designed to prevent any surface water run-off to the to the highway.  This requirement was introduced to help reduce the risk of future flooding and build up a more sustainable infrastructure.

If it is not possible to incorporate a SuDS solution you will need to seek Planning Permission from your Local Authority.  Failure to do so could be costly as your driveway may subsequently need to be replaced should it come to the notice of your Local Authority or you need to sell your property in the future.

We are able to provide you with detailed information and support to ensure that you are fully aware of what is involved to comply with the legislation.
