In some areas, local legislation demands that your driveway has to be permeable. We offer a wide range of attractive options using materials that fully comply with National Standards for Sustainable Drainage Systems.
Our permeable paving combines traditional durability with the ability to control storm water at source and prevent harmful pollutants from being released into sewers and natural watercourses. All our gravel and block options comply with current legislation.
What’s different about a permeable driveway?
Traditional, non-permeable surfaces tend to direct rainwater into local sewers; a problem if those sewers are already operating at near maximum capacity.
In the case of very heavy rainfall, non-permeable surfaces send large amounts of storm water pouring into rivers and other natural watercourses, resulting in erosion and pollution.
