Water Features



Permeable Paving

As of the 1st October 2008 planning permission is required to lay traditional impermeable driveways that allow uncontrolled runoff of rain water from front gardens on to roads, because this can contribute to flooding and pollution of water courses.

However, householders will not require planning permission if they use permeable paving, or have sufficient drainage or soak away to ensure runoff from non – permeable surfaces does not go on to roads.

Permeable paving is certainly the best option environmentally, and the easiest choice when it comes to the new legislation. However not everyone has the right soil conditions for permeable paving and for it to work well.
