Tobermore explain Permeable paving for small sustainable development site

Tobermore explain what type of paving would be most suitable for a small sustainable development site on the English/Welsh border.

Housebuilders will be aware that the government introduced new planning guidelines in 2015 in England for the use of SuDS on any new housing site with more than ten units. While in January 2019, the Welsh Government introduced new mandatory regulations for Sustainable Drainage Systems. Here, all new developments comprising more than one building or where the construction area is 100m² or greater, will require sustainable drainage systems (SuDS).

Tobermore offers a broad range of permeable paving options within its Hydropave range – a permeable paving range that is manufactured with all the aesthetic detail and beauty of the non-permeable ranges but with valuable environmental benefits.

In meeting with the growing demand for more innovation in the design of permeable paving, Tobermore have designed a range of laying patterns moving away from the traditional rectangular paving laid in a herringbone pattern. Hydropave is also available in a range of striking colours and varied textures.

When placing a Hydropave order, Housebuilders will also receive a tailor made customer service package, ServiceSure. This customer focused service follows a project from initial enquiry to delivery and beyond, updating customers at every stage ensuring an efficient, and consistent streamlined experience.

Hydropave is manufactured on a single site, with higher stock levels than the industry average, and is ready to be delivered to housebuilders in full and on time, without a long lead time. Additionally, Housing Developers using Tobermore products can avail of a fee indemnified design service, for permeable paving.
