Please note

Loose gravel or shingle is not ideal as such materials may be dragged onto the road/footpath and be detrimental to highway safety such as causing pedestrians to slip or vehicles to skid. In such instances, liability may fall to the householder. If you do use loose gravel or shingle you must install a suitable measure that will prevent material spilling onto the road / footpath.
