Urban planning: tackling flood risks from the design stage

 Climate change 

Hull is the second most at-risk city in the UK when it comes to flooding. A competition was launched to find ways of countering the risk in the planned redevelopment of Humber Quays West. The winning project, dubbed “Harper Perry”, proposes solutions to absorb and hold floor waters, before allowing them to drain off slowly via the promenades, amphitheatre-shaped public spaces, and parks. The competition site also shows the solutions suggested by the other candidates.
