NORMAL MAINTENANCE OF PRIVATE
DRIVES, LANES AND ROADS
responsible for maintaining private lanes, roads and drives at
all times throughout the year. This includes any grading,
stoning, blacktopping (if applicable), snow removal and damage
occurring from various weather conditions. It is important that
these accesses remain in good condition so that in the event of
an emergency, Ambulance, Fire and Police can gain access to
provide assistance. It is important to remember that some home
owner's insurance companies will consider the access conditions
when quoting and offering insurance to your property.
Emergency responders are not responsible when accesses or are
poorly maintained. Delays due to access conditions may result in
additional property damage from fire, delayed response from
police or even death when emergency medical services can not
make quick access.
Below you will find some suggested guidelines for maintenance of
private drives, lanes and roads.
|a) Keep all
accesses cleared to a width of 10 Feet, this is a
suggested drive lane width
b) Keep all trees and brush cleared outside the ten foot
c) Have the surface of the travel path smooth, and free of
ruts if the surface is not paved
d) Stoning the surface is suggested to avoid muddy
conditions during rain storms
e) Clear all overhead trees, branches and other obstacles
to a height of 14 feet from the travel surface to permit
fire, ambulance and utility vehicles entry as if needed.
f) Remove all snow, ice and other storm related debris as
quickly as possible after the weather occurrence. A good
rule of thumb is, if a two wheel drive vehicle can not
gain access, chances are emergency services will be unable
to gain access.
g) If you have additional questions please contact the
Chanceford Township Office or the Emergency Management
