Driveway gradient problem - Any Civil Engineers out there ?
Looking at buying a property in the Malvern Hills to set up a Bed & Breakfast business, and we have found a great house but there is a problem.
As you might expect in an area on the Malvern Hills, the house is built on the side of a hill, which gives amazing views but means that the driveway from the front of the house to the rear parking area is approx. 100ft long but drops a good 50ft, making the resulting angle pretty daunting for potential guests !
Does anyone know of a way of reducing the slope of a driveway like this ? I can imagine possibly going down in stages or building up the bottom of the garden ( where the driveway ends and cars are parked ) to reduce the angle but I have no idea about these things ?
Any help or links or ideas greatly appreciated.
