Home and Property Projects - Driveways

The information and links listed below provide guidelines about what you need to check before you start your driveway project so you can plan ahead for issues that may affect your project during the planning stage, while your project is underway, and after your project is complete.

Permits and applications

  • Constructing a new driveway entrance onto a town roadway
  • Constructing a second driveway to permit a circular driveway
  • Constructing driveway curbs on the road allowance
