LAND PROJECTED TO BE BELOW
ANNUAL FLOOD LEVEL IN 2050
Most people are now aware that the change in climate is leading to higher water levels but how will this change the environment we live in? What will the projected future look like without change? The maps below are a snapshot of how parts of the UK will look without meaningful change to behaviour and how we manage the run off of rain water. We can all take small steps that can add up to a big change. A BOUNDTEX or EcoTEX water permeable paving solution won’t solve the problem alone but it will play a small part of the bigger picture.
NEW DRIVEWAY RULES: MUST BE PERMEABLE
Homeowners face new driveway rules which could ban paving in front of houses. The new measures could impact homeowners and builders and bring more green spaces and less solid paving in efforts to help clean up Britain’s waterways. Paved driveways could be banned in new restrictions aimed at tackling river pollution in Britain. The government is considering new rules that could require homeowners to have sustainable drainage as part of their plan to clean up waterways. Solid paved driveways do not allow water to soak into the ground so we rely on drains instead. BOUNDTEX and EcoTEX are SUDs approved water permeable paving systems.
