Concrete permeable paving acts as the drainage system as well as supporting traffic loads. It allows water to pass through the surface and into the underlying sub base. Here, it is stored and released slowly, either into the ground to the next SuDS management stage, to a drainage system or alternatively harvested.
Consequently, it reduces the amount and rate of runoff and remove many of the pollutants in the runoff. It also benefits biodiversity by providing unpolluted water for wildlife, plants and trees, while eliminating the hazards that open gulleys presents to wildlife.
In conclusion, it reduces runoff, provides onsite treatment to minimise water course pollution and enables harvesting of water for irrigation/toilet flushing/general recycling.
