Creating an new driveway and getting conflicting advice.

Planning to put down a sub-base of say 150mm of Type 1 and then later on finish it with a permeable surface.

I know that if you have a non-permeable surface then you must have a run off to say a garden, however we are going with a permeable surface in accordance with permitted development permissions.

However is a Type 1 sub-base allowed?

Most sites that I look at say yes - however one or two say no.

As far as I can see it is the surface that is the important bit.
