The whole question

How do I go about requesting permission from the city council to use part of the front of my home, which is part of the curb, as a driveway for my car. I want to close it up due to constant stone-throwing of children in my area.

The long answer

Thank you for your letter about getting council permission to enclose a driveway in front of your house.

I don’t know where your house is, but generally you need to get written permission from the municipality’s building control officer. In Cape Town, you can contact the department at 080 065 6463 and they can direct you further.

You can also contact Customer Relations at 021 400 2736 / 1357
