The Environmental Benefits of Installing Permeable Paving
The Environment Agency states: “Over 3 million properties in England are at risk of surface water flooding…Surface water flooding is a risk because of its effect. It hits not just individual homes and businesses, but the whole infrastructure – road, rail, utilities etc – of a town or city, disrupting pretty much all aspects of modern life.” For the first time in 2016, surface water flooding was included on the National Risk Register by the government. It appears in the current 2020 edition as well. Typical consequences of such flooding causes irreparable damage to architecture and the environment, downturn in the local area's economy and human injury. UltraScape present ‘The Environmental Benefits of Installing Permeable Paving’ core curriculum CPD. The aim of this session is to highlight permeable paving as an alternative to traditional structures. Details of how permeable paving can provide a safe and environmentally-friendly substitute will be discussed. The full construction of the permeable paving installation, and materials used will be confirmed, before a number of wider environmental scheme considerations are delivered for deliberation.
By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- A deep understanding of the flooding crisis
- The need for permeable paving constructions
- How they benefit and have a positive effect
- Construction of the permeable paving installation and materials used
- Wider environmental scheme considerations

Article
This article offers an overview of the benefits of using BS 7533 for the design and construction of 'rigid' (mortar bed/mortar joint) pavements in public realm works. It discusses the basic principles of the standard and the guidance it provides for designing and constructing your paved area. It will demonstrate high quality paving where BS 7533 has been used successfully and shall also illustrate some of the problems of poor design or construction.
