Today’s hot topic: Flooding the housing market


THOUSANDS of homes are due to be built on land recently submerged by floods, it is reported.

In one case, the developers of a 1,300-home development in an area listed by the Environment Agency as a flood risk claim that their drainage plans mean the scheme will not be subject to ‘significant’ risk.

Should developers which build on flood plains and/or councils which give permission be forced to provide insurance against flood damage for the buyers of these homes? Discuss!
