At Customscape Ltd, we value offering full establishment administrations for our full scope of entryways, from manual opening to completely mechanised frameworks.
Our Contracts Department legitimately directs the entirety of our gate and entryway establishment groups. We utilise experts with long stretches of involvement with our items and follow our quality techniques and industry best practice.
We work to severe quality and well-being and security guidelines and are authorised by the main Health and Safety bodies and accreditation programs including CHAS, CSCS and Safe Contractor.
What’s more, we are perceived by various master bodies for working in explicit working conditions, including secret, high-security establishments.
Our experience, mastery, and working practices permit us to offer serious evaluating, an establishment that is best in class and significantly, the capacity to take care of business the first time.
If your proposed gate is taller than 1m, then you’ll need planning permission if your gate is ‘next to’ a road or footpath. There is a distinct grey area in the definition of ‘next to’ — some local authorities appear to remove the need for permission if there is more than 1m between the gate and footpath/highway; others require 5m; others, including the planning department we spoke to, didn’t seem to be aware of any buffer at all, just insisting on planning permission being required for gates over 1m on the ‘frontage’.
There is a raft of appeal decisions on this issue — all of which agree on the lack of a clear definition of ‘adjacent’. Unhelpfully, none come to a unified conclusion as to a safe distance from the highway to be considered Permitted Development. Each gate seems to be judged on its site specifics.
If your house is listed or subject to an Article 4 Direction, you will require special consent. If your gate is taller than 2m, you’ll need permission for it regardless of where it sits.
