Parking Requirements For New Dwellings: The Definitive Guide

parking-requirements-for-new-dwellings

Specific parking requirements for new dwellings during the build phase may be stipulated by local or planning authorities, and can cover size dimensions and materials, depending on their location and use.

However, when it comes to a property you already own, it’s easier to choose your driveway, pathway and parking requirements based on your preferences.

Elsewhere in the world, resin bound driveways have been the market leader of product for several years but now in the UK, these are beginning to grow in popularity, as property owners recognise the numerous benefits of such surfaces…

Enhanced Durability

Resin bound driveways are made up of pieces of stones, marble, recycled glass and natural aggregate that are coated all over with a clear resin before being blended together to ensure an even distribution of materials throughout the mixture.

Despite seeming as though it’s a spongy gel-type of product, resin is actually solid once cured; and extremely hard-wearing.

You may have noticed that resin bound surfaces are being increasingly used in areas of heavy traffic and high footfall, such as shopping mall car parks and children’s playgrounds. This is exactly why!

The smooth but solid surface that resin creates does not crack, scuff or become damaged like traditional concrete or paving blocks. It can withstand even the heaviest of mass on top of it, and will not deteriorate over time, or allow weeds to grow through.

Impressive Aesthetics

As resin bound driveways are made up of a mixture of different materials, this can be mixed and matched to meet your colour, shape or size specifications.

This enables you to best complement the existing exterior of your home, and not just make a bold statement that detracts from it… which is all too often seen with distinctive and bright paving designs!

The smooth surface of resin bound driveways also means that they are essentially wipe-clean, so dirt, grime and oil can be simply wiped away, to maintain a fresh and flawless appearance.

Sustainable Drainage

What many people don’t realise is that resin bound driveways are porous. This means that liquid can (slowly) pass through their surface and drain out naturally, without leaving standing water on the top, or requiring additional drainage to re-route the water.

This is in line with SUDs (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) standards, which encourages natural drainage rather than routing water elsewhere using pipes or water courses.

This means that no area has to take on any excess water and flood, instead routing it to naturally spread and drain back into the earth.

Bespoke Shaping and Sizing

Once the stone and aggregate has been coated in the resin and blended through, it is poured into a sub-grid, or onto an existing flat and solid surface.

As the material is poured in and not laid, there’s nothing to be cut down to size, and the mixture can be easily applied around drains, man-hole covers and plants. No matter how awkwardly shaped or sized your driveway or path, resin bound materialcan easily cover it!
