Planning Permission - driveways
Our whole range is a permeable paving solution; see here for more details - http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/permission/commonprojects/pavingfrontgarden
StablePAVE PRO is suited to pedestrian and vehicular traffic with the correct sub-base (50mm to 200mm of hardcore / crushed concrete - depending on the level of use) and 15-30mm of levelled and compacted sharp sand.
Whilst StablePAVE PRO can be used on reasonable slopes, and is in fact a very good slope stabilising unit, gradients over 1 :10 will result in migration of the top dressing of gravel, exposing the outline of the honeycomb which, in heavy traffic situations, may compromise long term durability.
Please view specification and installation pages.
The units are manufactured in the UK from 100% UK sourced re-cycled MDPE, so adding eco friendly and sustainable credentials to the product.

Country of manufacture

Ensure that the honeycomb is always covered with a thin layer of gravel (approx 10 to 20mm). If you can see the honeycomb this is when it can become damaged. You may need to top up the gravel on heavily trafficked areas.
The system is not designed for constant HGV traffic, other than as parking bays
