Default Interlock Questions


I am looking to install some interlocks in my front lawn. Basically looking to extend my driveway by another 4 - 5 feet. My questions are the following:

1) Including the walkway the front of the house will be about 45% interlock + driveway. For a single garage townhouse, do I need to get city permission?

2) I called to get the markings for the gas and hydro etc. I have both a gas main and a hydro main running under my lawn and I also have the water line. How deep are these things burried? Does anyone know? Are the mains trypically located where they are marked or are they approximations?

3) I have noticed many in the Halfmoon Bay area doing their own interlocks/driveways. Any pitfalls I should be aware off specific to the area? For those that park on their interlocked area, how deep did you dig? Any movement issues after some time due to the clay soil?

Thanks in advance for your time reading and responding to this.
