More frequent floods predicted in the future

August 2017

flood

As most recently highlighted in the August/September 2017 edition of the RICS Land Journal, flood events are predicted to become more frequent in the UK. 

As identified within the article, the reasons for this include climate change, increasing extreme weather events, failing infrastructure and poor planning. Given the adverse social and financial implications that flooding events have had on certain populations within the country, it is crucial that mitigation measures are adopted and embraced by those in the construction and planning sectors. The use of informed assessments can help prevent similar events in the future. 

A report produced by the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee in June 2016 stated that, ‘the Government appears to be reactive rather than proactive’ and goes onto consider that they need to ensure ‘…that local plans and flood strategies are in place’, concluding that it is only when these approaches are adopted/altered that resilience can be secured.
