A. 
From and after the enactment hereof, all driveways within the Township of Concord which intersect with a highway shall be constructed so as to provide a grade of not less than one inch of fall per foot from road edge to gutter line.
B. 
Where feasible, a paved basin shall be constructed in the gutter rather than inserting a pipe. However, where pipe is inserted in gutters for drainage purposes, said pipe shall be inserted as established by the Township Roadmaster.
Hereafter no driveway shall be constructed unless the property owner first receives a permit for the construction thereof from the Township Roadmaster, who, upon completion of the construction of said driveway, shall inspect and approve the same. Such permit shall be good for a period of six months, and the fee for such permit shall be as set from time to time by resolution of the Board of Supervisors.

A. 
Each application for a permit shall be submitted to the township in duplicate. The township shall collect a fee as determined by the Department of Transportation for processing the application and another fee for making the inspection. Each application shall be accompanied by both fees.
B. 
When the township grants the permit, the Board of Supervisors or its agent shall inspect the work authorized by the permit upon completion thereof and, when necessary, enforce compliance with the conditions, restrictions and regulations specified by the township. In addition to that inspection, the Board of Supervisors or its agents may reinspect the work not more than two years after its completion, and if any settlement of the road surface or other defect appears in the work contrary to the condition, restriction and regulations of the township, it may enforce compliance therewith.
C. 
If the applicant fails to rectify a defect which presents an immediate or imminent safety or health problem within 48 hours or any other defect within 60 days after written notice from the Board of Supervisors to do so, the Board or its agents may do the work and impose upon the applicant the cost thereof, together with an additional 20%, which may be recovered by action in assumpsit in the court of common pleas of the county. All fees received by the township shall be paid into the township treasury.
