LETTER: Development has been allowed to go on regardless

In relation to the development of the North Street Quarter a timely quote from John Lewes, a professor at the University of Aberystwyth:

“What is needed, is far more resilience for already developed floodplains, and much more serious insistence that future floodplain development should be virtually curtailed. Somewhere along the line floodplain development has been allowed by local authorities and the UK government to continue regardless.”
