Internal road - do I need permit?

Recommended Posts

Trying to tap into The forum wisdom: do I need permit to make a gravel road inside my land? It will be nothing more than some gravel on the surface to avoid getting stuck in the mud on rainy days?

thank you all

Never heard of anyone needing planning permission for driveways in gardens, especially if it is only gravel.

If the proposed driveway has any sort of incline I would definitely not use the small "Riso"  (equivalent of pea shingle) as it will get washed away the first time there is any substantial rainfall. The larger "Brecia" stays put better but can still result in having to shovel large quantities back into place after a deluge. "Brecia grande" is the stuff most likely to stay in place but is not to everyone's taste from a decorative point of view.

The Riso also gets stuck in soles of your boots (and car tyres) when muddy, as does the Brecia but to a lesser extent.

I believe you need a permit if you are creating a new entrance but would not imagine that would be necessary just to put some gravel down.

I used the big rocky stone to create a base then sand, and it became like a concrete over time once the rains come. Although some border may be a good idea to keep it in place. Riso or small gravel stones are also a pain if you come to cut the grass, anyone in range will be shot!
