This tag has been used instead of surface=paving_stones when 30x30 cm paving stones are used but nowadays the preferred way of doing this is to use surface=paving_stones and add the dimensions using subtags: paving_stones:shape=square + paving_stones:length=0.3.

These paving stones are commonly used for sidewalks in the Netherlands (and maybe in other countries too).


On the forum there was a discussion on the usage on this tag, see Paving_stones:30 en gebruik and a poll on whether to replace it.

The outcome of the poll was that there was a clear majority to replace it and there was support to do this semi-automated. For the Netherlands replacing surface=paving stones:30 was done October 2023, for Belgium November 2023.
