Do I have to get local authority permission to change my front garden into an in-out driveway?
If you are turning a single driveway into an in-out driveway then, by its very definition, this will require two cross-overs over your council-owned pavement, which will need their consent.
You should also check that there are no restrictive covenants affecting the use of the front garden, such as restrictions on using the frontage or garden area for garden purposes only and not for parking any vehicle.
