I'm looking at re laying my driveway, which is currently constructed of non porous materials and which runs into local drainage. I'm trying to come up with a solution regarding the rainwater run off according to building regulations and I hope you could offer some advice. The area is heavy clay soil down to at least 2 ft, I'm pretty confident (although I'll have to look myself if I cant find an alternative) after talking to neighbours that the clay goes a way further down still. So I've put the option of a permeable surface to one side for the moment. I'm more than happy to construct a soakaway, however it seems that I have no room. I have a 7 meter long front garden (from the house to the boundary) and then there's 2 meters of path next to the road. Therefore I'm unable to build a soakaway as I'd be within 6m of the road, and 5m of the house. It seems I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place regarding regulations, which I can completely understand the need for. Any suggestions?
