A new exhibition recently covered in The Guardian argues that a ‘landscape first’ approach to urban development could make our cities more resilient to flooding through innovative water management. An aerial photo of a green-roofed Herne Hill Highline features as part of this (http://bit.ly/14p106K) and is also one of the more eye-catching schemes within the Lost Effra Project and developed with The Urban Wild Project http://theurbanwildproject.org/. London Wildlife Trust, which implemented the Lost Effra Project for which funding is now complete, has just released a free, new guide titled 'Living with Rainwater' which shows how Herne Hillians can reduce local flood risk while creating natural spaces of benefit to people and wildlife. We are getting wetter winters and the booklet further stresses that Herne Hill’s capacity to flood can be put down to: (1) Herne Hill's natural landscape of valleys (increasing pooling) formed by the ancient Effra River, (2) an already overworked sewer system due to 'Effra water' drainage BEFORE water from homes, schools and businesses, (3) loss of green space in favour of hard surfaces. 'Living with Rainwater' offers numerous solutions and case studies for our local area (such as the the Cressingham Gardens Estate Rain Garden) all of which emphasise re-greening measures and some DIY. http://bit.ly/1Cc6zmD
You can read this online from: http://bit.ly/1Edpz3t or download a PDF. Well worth a read.
