DISCLAIMER

The manufacturing process of concrete products may result in variations in colour and texture which are unavoidable. All colour images shown are only representations. Every effort is made to ensure that colour samples match as close as possible to the product.

 

The amount a product is rumbled may vary from batch to batch and product to product. To minimise colour variation, it is recommended that paviours are used from from at least three separate packs when laying.

Lakeland Coniston

PERMEABLE BLOCK PAVING

Lakeland Coniston is the new addition to our Lakeland Block Paving range. This exciting permeable dual block paver has a rustic and rumbled texture but all the characteristic of our most popular Lakeland Derwentstone® block paviour.

A Permeable Paver allows water to pass through the paved area and sub base to outflow pipes or infiltration to ground. It is suitable for a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial applications.

The Lakeland Coniston is available in a 60mm and 80mm thickness in a popular range of colours including Ash, Brindle, Charcoal and Original. Buff is made to order only. This block paving is available in dual size packs which includes 210mm x 140mm and 140mm x 140mm sized bricks.

THICKNESSES AVAILABLE

60mm

Suitable for areas such as car parks, driveways and lightly trafficked roads.

80mm

  • What is Permeable Paving?

    Permeable paving provides an aesthetic solution to drainage problems in residential, commercial and industrial applications. Planners should be requesting CBPP and other SUDS systems for all types of developments.

    WHY IS IT NEEDED?

    Permeable paving is suitable for a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications. Planners should be requesting CBPP and other SUDS systems for all types of developments. Permeable paving, when used in conjunction with a properly constructed SUDS system offers a range of benefits:

    • Allows rainfall to filter through the paved area, without weakening the structural integrity.
    • Retention of rainfall, allowing it to gradually be absorbed into either the ground or through outflow pipes.
    • Cost effective, when taking into account the absence of pipework, gulley’s and inspection chambers, etc.
    • Compliance with planning guidance (PPG25) 'Development and flood risks'.
    • Improved water amenity achieved as the paving system acts as a filter of pollutants.

    COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION

    Recent extreme weather events have highlighted the need to manage the water flow.

    It has been recognised that impermeable surfaces contribute to the accelerated water flow into the drains, and a solution to this problem has been the development of CBPP (Concrete Block Permeable Paving). With CBPP surface water rapidly disperses down into the substrate below - which acts as a water reservoir during extreme weather conditions, thus reducing the pressure on the drainage system.

    A properly designed and implemented SUDS system has been shown to be a cost effective alternative to traditional drainage systems.

     

    ADVANTAGES OF PERMEABLE PAVING

    • Lower peak flows to the watercourse, which reduces risk of flooding downstream.
    • Compliance with PPG25 'Development and Fold Risks.'
    • Cost effective, compared to gulley’s, pipework and associated products that are required for conventional drainage systems.
    • Maintenance is minimal.
    • Like standard paving, they can be uplifted and re-instated without any detrimental affect. This means it can be re-laid leaving the area without any ugly scarring. Also giving a saving in using the existing materials and not having to dispose of the old surface and purchase further surfacing materials.
    • Improved water quality, filters the waterflow, removing heavy metal and hydrocarbons at source.
    • Able to handle direct drainage from roof water.
    • Reduces need for further retention in system.
