We offer permeable alternatives across most of our driveways
We fully comply with current regulations on Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS).
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.
“I am very pleased with the finished project and with the way it was carried out. Graham and his team were great. Very friendly and very good at what they were doing. I couldn’t believe how quickly they did the front drive.
Thank you again and as I said before I will have no trouble recommending your company to anyone else wanting their drive done.”
– Mrs Veronica John, Headington, Oxford
What’s different about New Driveway permeable block paved driveways?
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.
By ensuring that rainwater is absorbed into the ground close to where it falls, pollutants can be naturally filtered out, local sewers are not overloaded and water enters natural waterways at a gentle and manageable rate, reducing the likelihood of flooding.
Your permeable driveway is constructed from materials that allow this absorption of rainwater close to where it falls. This is achieved through the use of specially engineered blocks, foundations and bonding materials used to construct your driveway.
