Permeable Paving – A Greener Solution

Permeable paving is a type of paving system typically used for driveways, that allows water to pass through it, reducing the amount of runoff and erosion caused by traditional paving materials. This can also help to prevent flooding, as water will drain away naturally.

There are specific planning rules concerning the paving of a front garden for a replacement or new driveway. However, If you use a permeable surface which allows water to drain through, you will not need planning consent from your local council no matter the size of the driveway.

Our permeable options include a range of textures and colours and include, block paving from Marshalls in the Argent, Tegula and Driveline ranges. As an alternative to block paving, there are gravel stabilisation systems which keep a gravel driveway surface in place and can be an economical option, especially on a larger area, such as the one pictured here.

GWH can help you choose a stunning driveway to compliment your home whilst ensuring water will drain away freely and naturally and will not add to flooding problems or create standing water.
