Dronfield

Dronfield is a town in North East Derbyshire in the North Midlands region of England. It is made up of three communities, which are Dronfield, Dronfield Woodhouse and Coal Aston. It lies in the valley of the River Drone, and sits in between the town of Chesterfield and the city of Sheffield. Dronfield encompasses an area of 3457 acres, and the A61 trunk road, Dronfield-Unstone Bypass, cuts through the town. Being in close proximity to the Pennines, Dronfield also has easy access to the Peak District National Park, which is 3 miles away. It is believed that the town was in existence in advance of the 1086 Domesday Book, and it has a 12th-century parish church. Dronfield has a past history of manufacturing, with coal mining, the wool trade, the production of soap and steel, and engineering being the most popular industries. A variety of manufacturing companies continue to work within the town. The population of Dronfield has gone through substantial expansion ever since the post-war years, going from 6500 in 1945 to 21000 in 2011. This is partially the result of the town's position as a dormitory area for workers from close-by Chesterfield and Sheffield. The town is said to be home to the largest privately owned housing estate in Europe, called Gosforth Valley, when it was built in the 1970s. Despite having development and modernisation, the town has actually maintained its ancient character, with many historic buildings staying untouched. Inhabitants have plenty of opportunities for shopping at independent and commercial chain stores, visiting libraries and attending leisure centres. The world's oldest football team, Sheffield F. C., is based in the football stadium to the north of the town. For all of your house upgrades, make sure to make use of trusted experts in Dronfield to make certain of quality.

    FAQs

    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.

    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 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.
