+1 it seems unfair that they seem to go through this what seems like year on year. What are these so called planners doing about this. It would not take a rocket scientist or indeed the brains of an archbishop to work out: rainfall, slopes, rivers, lakes, roads and flooding. These people get paid a lot of money for what appears to be little work. Oh I nearly forgot they are more interested in stopping construction because of bats and crest headed newts, I can feel my blood starting to boil :-[
I was just watching some news footage of the flooding and I'm glad I'm not there. I remember in the 'great storm' of '87, there were loads of Council people out clearing roads etc but my local Council no longer employs anyone practical. I rang up about some fallen trees a while back and was told they had no-one able or willing to use a chainsaw either at height, at night or on branches more than 20mm thick. They don't stock sandbags anymore either.
