As part of your building contract have you been charged to provide crushed rock access in a built up residential area where you have a concrete driveway and footpath up to the building boundary?
I would expect crushed rock access to be provided in dirt areas and not built up area with concrete crossovers.

Although not necessarily for my build, i have seen 2 KDR builds just recently where the builders have placed crushed rock from the footpath boundary. There was no driveway. We are in an old suburb, fully built-up area.
Do you have an existing driveway?

Yeh I have an existing concrete strip driveway but as part of the KD it will be removed. But good to hear that you have seen other KDRBs that have crushed rock installed in the building envelope. At least it's a legitimate cost.
