Professional Resin Bound Driveway Installations by Resin Bound Drive
Why should I have a permeable driveway installed?
Recent changes to planning permission, in particular permitted development have been introduced to reduce the impact of surface water run off and flood risk. Since 2008, if your new driveway or front paved area uses a permeable surfacing system such as resin bound gravel you will not require planning permission. If you install a typical concrete, tarmac or block paving driveway of more than five square meters you are required to apply for permission from your local authority and pay the associated fees.
As we are all aware in the past year we have seen flooding in many parts of the United Kingdom resulting in catastrophic damage. Non permeable paving and driveways are a major contributing factor in urban flooding where the deluge of surface water from increased rainfall overwhelms the existing drainage systems.
What is SuDS?
SuDS are a range of techniques that aim to mimic the way rainfall drains in natural systems. Many existing drainage systems can cause problems of flooding, pollution or damage to the environment and are not proving to be sustainable in the long term.
National, regional and local planning policies encourage the adoption of SuDS and high standards of water efficiency.
Permeable Resin Bound Driveways are the solution.
A permeable resin bound driveway allows water to drain away through to the water table, preventing surface run off and helping to sustain the surrounding planted areas. Installation times are far less than block paving and resin bound systems are available in hundreds of colours to suit traditional and contemporary properties. Resin Bound Surfacing is frost proof, suppresses weeds and is non slip.
A permeable resin bound driveway gives a property real kerb appeal, adding value, without impact on the environment.
