SuDS Surfacing Specifications Near Me
The most popular outdoor surface type which is designed to suit Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) is resin bound gravel. This specification is made with a combination of natural stone and a strong binder to form a mixture. The stone and binder will then be applied and screeded onto the chosen area, usually with a tarmac sub base to act as a foundation and source control.
Due to the small gaps left between the stones when the surface has been applied, the flooring is permeable, and rainwater drains through more efficiently. This prevents any surface water runoff from travelling to other areas and increasing flood risk during periods of heavy rain.
Many homeowners have SuDS-compatible resin bound paving installed for driveways and gardens to reduce water damage in urban areas. If you would like more information on a SUDS eco drive, make sure to look at this page.
The designs can be extremely decorative with a variety of natural and coloured stone options.

What is a SuDS Compliant Surface?
A SuDS compliant surface is a flooring type that allows rainwater to pass through easily, making them more sustainable than other surfacing types to mimic natural surfaces. The porous features of a SuDS compliant surfacing mean that rainwater will not puddle the surfacing through source control, and so you will not need to worry about flooding of the area during heavy rainfall.
It is recommended for these type of surfaces to be installed for a more sustainable area. Depending on the sub base and flooring type you have installed, some SuDS compatible surfaces could be used to recycle water with good water quality. If you plan to recycle rainwater using your SuDS flooring, make sure you use a professional contractor to ensure the water is safe to recycle.

As well as absorbing surface water, the stone flooring types used with Sustainable Drainage System can also be used to recycle rainwater for domestic purposes. The resin-bound system uses a tarmac sub base, so this is not suitable for reusing rainwater; however, a Sudscape system may be used. To find out more about this, please click here.
The Sudscape flooring specification has a base layer of rubber mixed with stone and a wearing course of resin bound gravel. As there is no need for a tarmac base, the soaking surface water can be collected and used for household things like flushing toilets.

What is a sustainable urban drainage system?
Sustainable drainage systems are a set of surface water management methods aimed at bringing contemporary drainage systems in line with natural water cycles. SuDS initiatives improve the compatibility of urban drainage systems that mimic natural drainage systems with natural surface water cycle components including storm surge overflows, soil percolation, and bio-filtration producing good water quality.
What is the purpose of a sustainable urban drainage system?
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are utilized in Europe with the primary goal of preserving biological variety and natural resources for future requirements, as well as safeguarding important water supplies from contamination resulting from climate change.
Are SUDS mandatory in England?
SuDS are currently not required in England for planning applications or new developments. The updated National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) in England specifies that significant projects should include SuDS unless doing so would be inappropriate.
