The Environment Agency states: “Over 3 million properties in England are at risk of surface water flooding…Surface water flooding is a risk because of its effect. It hits not just individual homes and businesses, but the whole infrastructure – road, rail, utilities etc – of a town or city, disrupting pretty much all aspects of modern life.” For the first time in 2016, surface water flooding was included on the National Risk Register by the government. It appears in the current 2020 edition as well. Typical consequences of such flooding causes irreparable damage to architecture and the environment, downturn in the local area’s economy and human injury. UltraScape present ‘The Environmental Benefits of Installing Permeable Paving’ core curriculum CPD. The aim of this session is to highlight permeable paving as an alternative to traditional structures. Details of how permeable paving can provide a safe and environmentally-friendly substitute will be discussed. The full construction of the permeable paving installation, and materials used will be confirmed, before a number of wider environmental scheme considerations are delivered for deliberation.
