Friday 6th September, pouring with rain and I am on my way to the Brighton Globe for the annual DConstruct conference 2013.

Over Winter 2012/13 the United Kingdom once again saw vast flooding affecting thousands of people. Towns and cities such as Aberwstwyth and York, and areas in Devon are just some of the places that were adversely affected by the widespread flooding.

Furthermore, it is not just properties that were directly affected; infrastructure lines to Devon were severely impacted causing disruption, delays and in the worst cases leaving people stranded.

Argyll’s team of consultants has recently pondered the effect of the recent weather on local flood risk. While we enjoyed a few days of snow before the ensuing travel disruption became monotonous, we pondered what would become of all this snow once the weather warmed. Large areas of Sussex and the UK remain snow covered while many of the urban areas are no longer fairy tale postcards.
