Permeable Driveway in York
We created a permeable driveway in York which negates the use of drains or soak aways and enables the driveway to be perfectly flat with no fall.
Bellow is a snippet from the marshals website:
Everyday decisions such as creating vehicle parking areas on our properties can have environmental consequences. In times of heavy or sustained rainfall the drainage system can become overloaded and cause catastrophic flooding. This has resulted in changes to Government legislation and it is becoming increasingly important to focus on well balanced, sustainable driveway design.
Marshalls revolutionary patented Permeable block paving is a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) for driveways. It has all the benefits of an efficient drainage system that returns rainfall to the water table, without the need for membranes, tanks or soakaways, and therefore no planning permission is necessary prior to laying.
