Driveway Approach/Curb & Gutter Project Requirements

A driveway approach is the ramped portion of the sidewalk, including the lower curb and gutter, that allow vehicles to access private property from the street. A permit is required to replace or install new driveway approaches, curbs & gutters. To obtain a permit complete an application and submit a plot plan in person at the Permit Center, along with an application for a pre-inspection (applicable fees apply and will be charged when application is submitted). This will determine if the proposed project will be approved or denied.

On some projects, conditions of approval will be required to obtain a permit.

An inspection of site conditions will follow within 72 hours of the application submittal. Applicant must have an appointment time and date with a Department Service Technician (DST) any time after 72-hours for permit approval and issuance or proposed project corrections.

Contractor must be insured and licensed with a valid license Class A, C-8, or C-12 at the time of the proposed project. You may visit the California Contractor State License Board to verify your contractor's license and insurance status, or enter the Contractor License Number into the database search provided by the State.
