Ashbourne

Ashbourne is a market town within the Derbyshire Dales in England. Because of its proximity to the southern edge of the Peak District and being the nearest town to the popular area of Dovedale, the town is referred to as both the 'Gateway to Dovedale' and the 'Gateway to the Peak District'. Because of this tourism has constantly been critical for the town's economy. As per the 2011 Census, the town boasts a permanent population of around 8377 people. It includes a lot of historical buildings and a lot of independent shops and is popular for its traditional annual Shrovetide football match. The cobbled market place hosts a traditional outdoor market each Thursday and Saturday throughout the year, complementing the large selection of individual shops inside the town. Despite the fact that its market heritage is very important, Ashbourne's market came under threat of closure from Derbyshire County Council in November 2012. Residents of Ashbourne have stood against any such moves by the council and started an online petition. Ashbourne became the 97th Fairtrade Town in March 2005 following many local businesses, cafes, shops and community organisations began supporting Fairtrade. Ashbourne has a significant quantity of public houses for such a small town centre. At present, you'll find ten pubs open, in addition to two social clubs. The renowned and rare 'gallows' sign across St John's Street is still central meeting point within the town. Local historians have noted that almost 1 in 4 buildings within the town have at one time or another been an alehouse, pub or inn or were redeveloped on the site of such an establishment. For all of your home upgrades, be sure that you employ trusted experts in Ashbourne to ensure you get the most effective quality service.

    FAQs

    how to lay paving slabs

    To inexperienced people laying of paving slab isn’t much more than digging a little, purchasing little amount of mortar and pressing down the paving slabs. But how good would it have been if only it were that easy in real life? The truth is, in reality, laying paving slabs does not only require you to prepare your sub-base painstakingly and mix your mortar using the appropriate materials, but you’d also have to work with accurate and precise paver placements to guarantee the patio’s longevity. As a result, if you lack proper training or experience, we’d recommend you hire the services of a seasoned professional who can guarantee the best results and also save you time and extra cash that may result from possible costly errors. In this guide, you’d gain more insight into the paving slabs laying process.

    To get started, you’ll need sharp sand, cement, shovel, wheelbarrow, pointing trowel, rubber mallet, spirit level, jointing compound, hard-bristled brush and tarpaulin.

    • Mix a layer of mortar for each paver.

    • Apply the mixed mortar onto the sub base by using the trowel.

    • Slot the first flag in place and ensure not to stain the paver’s surface with the mixed mortar.

    • Using a rubber mallet, carefully tap the paver to the mortar bed. Once done, ensure the surface is even with a spirit level.

    • Take a measurement of the gap between the pavers

    • Repeat the above steps until all pavers have been perfectly laid

    • Leave the pavers to dry for about 1 to 2 days. You can protect it using a tarpaulin if concerned about rain.

    • Use the jointing compound to fill up the paver gaps to bind together the pavers. Ensure to wipe off any excess compound using the hard bristled brush.

    do you need planning permission for a driveway

    As a homeowner, your home is your haven where you can control things and add more value, however that doesn’t give you the license to go around digging up your driveway as you deem fit. Replacing your old driveway with a new one comes with its own unique set of rules which are put in place to ensure that your personal preferences doesn’t pose long term issues such as flooding or poor visibility on any adjoining road. You should however note that it’s not every time you would need a planing permission for your driveway.

    Below are the circumstances whereby you’ll need to submit an application before commencing your driveway paving project.

    • In the event whereby you are to pave a driveway of over 5 square metres and/or a permeable surface is not available for its drainage. If the later is not available, there’ll be an increase in the flood risk. As a result, there’s the need to take into account permeable paving for your project.

    • In the event whereby you’re changing the visibility on your road. These situations include removal of trees, gates or walls and the like. So far your changes negatively affects drivers’ visibility, you’ll need a planning permission.

    • In the situations whereby you need to include a drop kerb. You may plan to add in a drop kerb if you’re thinking about expanding your driveway. Therefore, since residents can’t change the roads or pavements at their first fanciful impulse you’ll need to consult your local council before submitting your application.

    • In the situation whereby its a listed building. Planning decisions are also greatly affected by the need to protect historic building. So if your building is a listed one, you’d have to submit an application before making changes.

    how thick should a driveway concrete slab be

    Do you want to know the level of thickness a driveway concrete slab should be? Well, you are not alone! So many other home owners ask this question on a regular basis and reasonably so. In order to prevent cracks on your concrete over time, it’s crucial to ensure an even thickness across your driveway concrete. To determine the necessary thickness of your driveway concrete, there are some questions that must be answered. These includes:

    • What’s the number of vehicles you expect to have on your driveway?

    • Do you plan on parking heavy, industrial vehicles on it?

    For a standard passenger vehicle driveway, you’d have a driveway spanning 8 to 9 feet in width as well as 15 to 18 feet for double width. The thickness for this type of driveway concrete is usually 4 inches of non-reinforced pavement. Ultimately, this enables you to park everyday family cars on it without having to worry about it cracking due to the car’s weight. Also in order to prevent cracks, it’s expected that the driveway should be sloped towards the street as this would make sure that there’s a run off of water especially for areas that experience lots of flooding. In addition, there’s also the need to install joints to prevent cracking. For the standard 4 inch thick driveway, these joints should be positioned about 10 feet apart.

    Finally for parking heavy industrial vehicles, your concrete driveway is expected to be thicker in order to cope with the added weight. Typically, the concrete driveway will require a thickness of about 5 inches. The additional one inch may not sound much, but the fact is this can increase the load carrying capacity of the concrete driveway by up to 50 percent.

    how to lay slabs for a driveway

    Do you know why paving slaps is a popular choice for both driveways and patios? Well, it’s the versatility! With its durability, diverse colour range, different styles as well as a timeless appeal, paving slabs happen to be a common choice amongst home owners. However, you should know that redeeming these benefits is not as simple as shovelling mortar and pressing down the paving slabs, and neither is it a case whereby you can just copy the laying process of a porcelain paving or block paving. Laying of paving slabs is on a whole other level! As a result, we’d recommend employing a trustworthy professional who can guarantee the best results the first time, especially if you lack proper training or experience to complete the task. In this step by step guide, you’ll discover more about the paving slabs laying process.

    • Prepare your paving foundation. This includes checking that your foundation is level, marking out the area to be paved with wooden pegs, removing all vegetation and top soil to a depth of about 200mm to 250mm and raking the area level to ensure and even depth.

    • Mix a layer of mortar for each paver and apply the mixed mortar onto the sub base by using the trowel.

    • Lay the slabs on top of the laying course at the lowest point of the area to be paved.

    • Take note that you may need to cut some slabs depending on the paving area size, your chosen slabs and the pattern selected.

    • Once done, brush the area clean and start jointing. The best way to do this is by applying kiln dried sand to the paved area and carefully brush into the joints with a brush.

    • Push the sands into the joints using a plate compactor

    • Check the paved area for any gaps and fill where necessary.
