MA Hart offer a complete drainage solution for your home or commercial premises. All of our surfacing and driveways include permeable solutions which comply with driveway legislation as follows:
“From 1 October 2008 new rules apply for householders wanting to hard surface over their front gardens. If the surface to be covered is more than five square metres, you will need planning permission for laying traditional, impermeable driveways that do not control rainwater running off onto roads.
This will apply to new driveways, drive extensions or drive replacements. You will NOT need planning permission if the surface to be covered is less than five square metres or if the new surface is permeable or porous or if a traditional surface is laid and the rainwater is directed to a lawn or border to drain naturally or if it is directed to a soakaway via a drainage channel.”
