Does your property have access issues? Consider constructing a private road


Whether it’s residential or commercial, you may have a property that has pedestrian-only access, which can be an issue for many reasons, including:

  • Receiving deliveries
  • Guests and visitors
  • Lack of parking
  • Safety of vehicles
  • People with disabilities who need vehicular access

Of course, it’s not always possible to have access for vehicles, but in many cases, it’s possible to install a private road that will allow you to drive up to your property. A private road is one that’s owned by an individual or organisations who take responsibility for a road and its upkeep and not the government.

There are many occurrences where roads are owned collectively by a number of residents, so if you need a road that will be to the benefit of more than just yourself it can be possible to split the cost.

There are a number of benefits to owning a private road, including:

  • Control over its upkeep and development
  • Quickly fix any potholes or cracks and avoid car damage
  • Increased security
  • Increased value on your property provided the road is included in any sale
