Government planning and local authorities look favourably on Resin Bound driveways and paths because they are permeable and water can drain away at a more ‘natural’ rate than from non porous surfaces.
In 2008 this legislation was brought in as a response to the number of people who were converting their front gardens into driveways. In turn this contributed towards more flash flooding due to the speed of run off into the drainage area.
Because of this, planning permission is not usually required, where non permeable surfaces like concrete, will usually require permission for surfaces that are over 5 square metres.
If you’re not too sure whether you will need planning permission or not then why not get in touch with us and we will advise you.
