Porous permeable suds compliant resin

What does the porous in permeable suds compliant resin mean?

Has many small holes so liquid or air can pass through


A substance allowing liquid or gases to go though it 

Suds compliant 

Sustainable Urban Drainage System – to manage run off water

All indicators of the free draining qualities of resin bound.  But the Suds principals actually cover a number of options and choices.   Meaning  porous permeable suds compliant resin does not have to be a necessary resin option.  Resin bonded meets the required spec because

SuDS principles

“Sustainable drainage is a departure from the traditional approach to draining sites. There are some key principles that influence the planning and design process enabling SuDS to mimic natural drainage by:


  • storing runoff and releasing it slowly (attenuation)
  • harvesting and using the rain close to where it falls
  • allowing water to soak into the ground (infiltration)
  • Slowly transporting (conveying) water on the surface
  • filtering out pollutants
  • allowing sediments to settle out by controlling the flow of the water

Surface water is a valuable resource and this should be reflected in that way is is managed. It should be considered from the beginning of the development process and throughout, influencing the design and layout of public open space, transport networks etc. It is important, where appropriate and particularly on larger developments that an interdisciplinary team (planners, engineers, landscape architects) should work together from the outset. SuDS are very flexible and there are a number of ways that they can applied to provide great drainage that are both value for money and inspirational.

So resin bonded stone can be a Suds Compliant resurfacing option.  Whilst being impermeable (which is an advantage as it) if the run off water on a new front  hard landscaping area is managed then it is Suds compliant.”
