Generally, under Permitted Development Rights, planning permission is not required for installing electric gates on domestic properties. However, there are specific conditions to consider. For more information, read our blog: Do Electric Gates Need Planning Permission?

Ultimately, you need to make sure that there’s enough space to install it and use it so, no, not every driveway will be able to have an electric gate. However, if you have enough clear space to be able to drive your car through it, and park with enough clearance around it to enable you to open and close the electric gate it will be fine.

Absolutely, but only if they are installed properly, with integrated safety systems (which Green Light Electrical can advise you on, depending on your situation and environment), the correct wiring and comprehensive testing. They must also be maintained regularly. There is no compromise when it comes to the safety of your electric gates.

All contractors who offer electric gates should have relevant qualifications, they might have been trained directly by a manufacturer, Gate Safe approved and whether or not they’ve been approved by the Doors and Hardware Federation. The accreditations you’re looking out for are:

This is a Testimonial for Nick Green for the work he did on my offices, and the support that he has given some of my clients over the years. I have struggled with tradesman over the year and been let down on many occasions. It has been so refreshing to work with Nick and his team and know that when they say they are going to do something they book it in and it gets done. They give a fixed price and will always communicate if things are not going to plan. Would thoroughly recommend Nick and the team at GLE

Excellent work and service. Very helpful when we had an issue caused by our building company (not GLE). Will certainly use again for future electrical work.

Excellent service from this company. Initially used as an electrical emergency during the Christmas period, arrived very promptly even though they should've been closed, as all other engineers were. I am now using them to fix my electric gates. All staff I have been in contact with ( Office Manager, electrical engineers and the 'boss') have been extremely polite and very efficient. Electric gates now fixed. They continue to offer a fantastic service with very friendly and efficient staff. I would highly recommend them for any electrical job.

Green Light Electrical came to the Lymington Save The Children shop to fit a new heater switch for the front door heater. Even though the work was carried out during shop opening times, it was done very professionally and without disruption to the customers or store staff. The site was left cleaner than when they arrived! Would highly recommend.
