Flooding to Farmland: Who Controls the Floodgates?
Flooding is an ever greater issue with what seems to be a possible evolution in our climate, housing estates being built on flood plain and a logical preference of policy makers to protect homes rather than farmland. How far can you protect your own land? If the Environment Agency uses your land, is there a claim against them? How do flood storage areas work and might my land qualify as a flood storage area? What are the implications if it does?
