After the changes to the permitted development rights planning laws in 2008, owners wishing to re surface gardens and driveways without planning consent must use a permeable paving solution such as our resin bound surface. This means you won’t have to apply for planning permission.Traditional type surfacing such as tarmac, block paving or concrete require planning consent if the area is over 5 Square Meters. This involves having scaled plans drawn up, a planning application fee and up to 8 weeks delay before a planning decision follows.resin bound surfaces require no planning consent.
