SDAPP Fact Sheet 4.1 - Site Permeability

This fact sheet examines the increasing densities in our urban environments which have led to a dramatic reduction in permeable surfaces, through the construction of impervious roads, buildings and car parks. Council encourages you to consider permeable design solutions in your building project to help prevent stormwater run-off, which in turn has capacity implications for drainage infrastructure and can degrade the water quality of rivers and creeks.
