SuDs, Sustainable Drainage Systems Installed by Resin Install.

Whats That? No Planning Permission? Oh YES!

Developers are urged by Council Planners to use SuDs (Sustainable Drainage Systems) on drives wherever possible, to reduce water runoff and reduce the risk of floods. Concrete and block paved drives are not permeable so, rainwater runs off creating a flood risk.

Resin Bound gravel on driveways and paths is SuDs Compliant, and it is permeable allowing rainwater to drain naturally back to the water table.


Permeable Paving Installed Nationwide By Resin Install.

Since Resin Bound gravel is a SUDS compliant (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) surface, the installation of the flooring does not require planning permission. SuDS compliant surfaces allow water to drain through the surface. 

Another great thing about this permeable paving is that the surface requires very little maintenance. If you'd like to find out more about permeable paving, fill out our enquiry form, and we shall provide you with more information on porous resin-bound driveways.

Resin Bonded surfaces are perfect to be laid over the top of an existing tarmac or concrete driveway, significantly reducing the cost and time to install to one or two days. We have two leading teams at Resin Install, our installers and landscapers with years of experience.

Due to no required excavation, the process is straightforward, large Resin Bound overlays 600 to 800 sq meters can be installed per day with our in-house teams. Edges can still be excavated, and a block edge can be installed allowing the resin mixture to be applied to the right depth this adds around one to two days. Or we can install an aluminium bead edge the most popular option.

Remember installing on top of block paving is risky due to the possible movement of the paving blocks underneath, affecting the resin surface, which could leave an uneven finish and even cause the resin surface to crack. Many people take the risk due to the cost difference, but please be aware of companies offering guarantees with this option. Sign up to our resin install newsletter full blog on this coming soon.

Resin Bonded Drives Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside, Yorkshire.

Along with Resin Bound surfacing, we also install Resin Bonded gravel. This is not a permeable surface type but is still popular. The bonded gravel is a scatter system, which means the Resin is laid down first, and then the stone aggregate is scattered on top. Therefore the surface is not smooth. Resin Bonded gravel is a cheaper option, but be aware that this flooring type is not porous and water can build up on top of the surface in the event of a heavy downfall.
