Key features

  • Permeable Paving - these paving blocks allow rainfall to drain between the bricks to naturally soak-away fulfilling source control criteria as part of Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDS)
  • Prevent Surface Run-Off - helps prevent localised surface flooding when mains drainage becomes overwhelmed; it does this by keeping rainfall on your property where it will soak-away, rather than letting it run into the roads and drains
  • Driveways & Parking Areas Paving - designed specifically for driveways and parking areas
  • Natural Looking Parking Area - discreet, extra parking spaces, yet at the same time keeping the area essentially grassland
  • Avoid Planning Permission - if you are using permeable paving to pave your own domestic driveway or area at the front of your property, then you can do so without applying for planning permission
  • Environment & Sustainability - permeable paving should be considered by housebuilders and developers for both your Sustainable Urban Drainage plan and to ensure you're aligned with BREEAM advice to assist you with any planning application you're undertaking.
Product details

Driveways & Parking Areas Paving

GrassPark facilitates natural drainage of rainwater into the subsoil and, as such, should negate the requirement for planning permission when used to pave front gardens for hard standing. As with every construction project, it is always advisable to check with the relevant local planning authority prior to starting your project.

100mm Permeable Parking Grid

These permeable grid block pavers have a depth of 100mm making them suitable vehicle parking areas and driveways.

Prevent Surface Run-Off

These blocks are designed to allow water to pass between the blocks and soak-away beneath your paved area. This allows rainfall to naturally soak into the ground and prevents it from running off into unwanted areas (such as the street at the front of your home) which could contribute to localised flooding during downpours.

Homeowners - Avoid Need for Planning Permission

Using permeable paving for driveways or paved areas at the front of your property will allow you to install it without requiring planning permission if you have no lawn areas or borders into which any run-off water can drain.

The UK Government changed planning regulations in 2008 following major flooding across the country the previous year. The Environment Agency conducted studies that showed that 66% of surface water flooding where the mains drainage was overwhelmed was caused by run-off rainwater from driveways and paved areas. To prevent this “flash flooding” phenomena, they introduced new planning guidance requiring the use of permeable paving where no run-off into lawns/borders was possible to prevent the water from reaching the street and mains sewers.

House Builders & Developers - Environment & Sustainability

These permeable paving blocks can be used to gain credit in your planning applications with regard to Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDS) considerations.

As part of the wider solution to Surface Water Flooding, the Government has made a series of changes to legislation, guidance and planning regulations. Flood and Water Management Act 2010 sets out the requirements of Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDS) in which a natural approach to managing drainage in and around properties and other developments is required. A key component of this is using permeable paving where no suitable soak-away area or mechanism on the property for that paving exists. This approach ensures that rainwater is able to naturally enter the ground on the property or site (source control) and soak into the ground without leaving the site.

Additionally, other soakaway/drainage mechanisms such as swales, soak-away channels and filter drains can be used to provide additional credit relating to (site control) as part of your SUDS considerations that will be assessed in your planning application.
