    "Just be aware, specific rules apply for householders wanting to pave over their front gardens.

    You will not need planning permission if a new or replacement driveway of any size uses permeable (or porous) surfacing which allows water to drain through, such as gravel, permeable concrete block paving or porous asphalt, or if the rainwater is directed to a lawn or border to drain naturally.

    If the surface to be covered is more than five square metres, planning permission will be needed for laying traditional, impermeable driveways that do not provide for the water to run to a permeable area.
    This is advice from the government portal."

    "The description of the work all sounds fairly straight forward, although I would need to view the area and get measurements to provide you with an exact costing for this work.
