If you need to convert the front of your home into a driveway area, you will require either planning permission or a drainage solution to convert the garden to a hard standing surface. Under SUDS regulations, all the runoff from a converted garden area must be kept within the property and drained away. This stops the roads and pavements from having to deal with extra flooding during heavy downpours.
The most common type of option for this is either aco channel drains that run across the front of the driveway and will catch all the surface water. These are connected into either an existing drainage solution or a soak away pit built to purpose.
The second option is a permeable driveway which generally is done using one of these 3 options. The first option is a gravel stone driveway, the second option is permeable paving and the third option is resin bound.
Each is a permeable surface which will allow water to drain down and not run across the surface. The key to this type of surface is the base foundation and the preparation. The base needs to be built using a permeable Type 3 MOT Foundation and to a minimum depth of 10 inches. Jointing if required, should be done using a grit style not a fine sand as it will drain away faster.
Most types of choices are available in the same colour and design, regardless if its permeable, non permeable or in between.
