Summary

The Government commissioned this research to provide a clear understanding of the different characteristics of various permeable and impermeable surfaces that can be used for paving front gardens and other domestic and non-domestic areas of hard standing.

Interim findings informed legislative changes made in October 2008 to restrict front garden paving and the final report has informed the Government's proposals for non-domestic hard surfacing. These are set out in The Killian Pretty Review: Planning Applications - A faster and more responsive system: Final Report.

The findings and recommendations in this report are those of the consultant authors and do not necessarily represent the views or proposed policies of Communities and Local Government.
