Living with Rainwater

Well worth a read: LWT's 'Living with Rainwater' booklet focuses on 'resilient' Herne Hill

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.
