Hi,

What are the rules/regs around how the drive connects to the path, in regards to height?

Is a step (say an inch or two) allowed?

I ask, due to looking at some other work a paving company have done and notice one had a step up.

Thanks

I would say that they should meet at the same level, an inch step is more of a trip hazard than a 6 inch step.
There maybe a plausible reason for this which I can't think of but a few images may enlighten.

Don't think you will find any regulations though. Maybe British standard or something but probably not enforceable.

a step in building regs' is from 150 to 170 in height. they say: anything below 75 ml is a potential trip hazard. ideally you want to bring your drive in at the same height as the path.

^^ agreed a natural step is around 150mm or 6 inches in old money
do you mean a garden path or the footpath?
if its the footpath the drive should be flush or 10-15 mm higher

cheers LLL

Flush is the best option - you can get wheelie bins, kids' bikes, lawnmowers and the like from one to t'other with ease.

There is no regulation anywhere in Britiash or Irish standards or regulations governing height relation between a pathway and a driveway.
