Planning with Paving

Concrete Block Permeable Paving

  • • Reducing, attenuating and treating runoff near the surface
    • Direct infiltration or conveyance to the management train
    • Multi-functional SuDS meeting current guidelines
    • Established technology with proven performance
    • No additional land-take and lower whole-life costs
    • Safe, level, puddle-free, shared surfaces for all

A gradual supply of clean water for landscape design, biodiversity and harvesting
