Formpave’s SUDS reduce flooding risk at Bristol

Formpave’s SUDS reduce flooding risk at Bristol

A Barratt Homes development of 131 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in Bristol has used 800m2 of Formpave’s sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS), Aquaflow, to reduce the risk of local flooding.

Installing a permeable paving sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) eradicates surface pooling and puddles while allowing rainwater to be harvested and reused. Its use can reduce the risk of flooding and help control the amount of water that enters the drainage infrastructure.

Bristol City Council insisted that Barratt Homes’ ND10 at the Zone development installed a SUDS as part of the planning conditions, a condition set to become mandatory nationwide when The Flood and Water Management Act 2010 comes into force.

ND10 at the Zone uses Hanson Formpave’s Aquaflow permeable paving SUDS in Golden Brindle and Charcoal as well as the company’s Aquasett and Chartres traditional paving to meet planning conditions and ensure the road to the development meets Bristol City Council’s standards for adoption.
