Permeable paving – design tips & more

23 July 2021

As part of our recent website redesign, we have created a new permeable paving WSUD assets page.

This page provides resources for anyone embarking on a permeable paving project, including:

  • The benefits of applying permeable paving in your next project
  • Our top 6 design tips, complete with standard drawings and/or short videos from experienced researchers, practitioners and trainers from past events
    Design tip 1 - permeable paving
  • Presentations – from our permeable paving seminars and site tours
  • Videos – from our permeable paving seminars and site tours
  • Evidence & research – providing data on the performance of permeable pavers in expansive soils, whole-of-life costs of permeable paves versus conventional surface materials and the fate of hydrocarbons in permeable paving systems
  • Projects & demonstrations – local WSUD projects and permeable paving demonsrations.

If you are looking for technical information on permeable pavers and can’t find it on our new page, please contact us.

We’ll be updating existing WSUD assets pages and adding new ones soon: Biofilters, green roofs and walls, and infiltration systems.
