Resin Bound Paving has become a huge part of my life and this industry not only creates wonderful looking and hard wearing surfaces for all kinds of applications, but also creates an opportunity to create a permeable SUDS compliant surface which reduces surface run off, reduces pollutants into our soils and waterways but also helps reduce flooding, which is fast becoming a regular problem in the UK.
