So says Richard Benyon MP in support of Kabina’s approach to creating new homes in UK flood zones, and in particular in the Thames Valley, where people want and need to live.
‘Flood resilience’ in UK Government parlance refers to traditional homes that get tolerably wet (ie they have, for example, ramps, front door flood barriers/gates, raised sockets, sacrificial basements & garages, etc).
Kabina’s approach to this is that ‘flood resilience’ illustrates a ‘sand-bag’ methodology which needs to be replaced with robust, fully flood-proof technology that ensures the homes remain dry at all times, whatever the flood condition. The UK Government term for this alternative approach is ‘flood resistant’.
