Planning Permission

Do you need Planning Permission?

To overcome the new legislation for planning permission (set in October 2008) for any impermeable paving surface, IPS will carry out the following if the paving is to be carried out between the house frontage and the road :

  • We will insert drainage channels to take the rainfall prior to it entering the road
  • We then excavate a soak away in the ground and direct the rain water from the drainage channels to the soak away via a pipe
  • This results in all the rainwater landing on your new surface, soaking into the ground or into the surrounding garden
