The increased risk of flooding has led to the Government making changes in its legislation to ensure that adequate drainage is incorporated into your driveway or patio design. Permeable paving offers a perfect solution to this.
The Priora Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) has been designed to manage heavy rainfalls as it allows surface water to pass between the blocks into a specially calculated sub-base without compromising the structural performance. Hydro Static Land drainage pipework can be buried under the lawn installed in a herringbone pattern to create effective drainage in heavy clay areas.
Discreet surface water channels can be directed to a specifically designed soakaway as an alternative to using permeable paving but in keeping with the latest regulations. This is a far more cost-effective solution in most cases.
