Default Time to Stop Building on Flood Plains?

A brand new , unfinished housing estate at Glasdir Ruthin is under water today.
Locals have known and voiced their opinions that this estate was being built on a known flood plain. No one listened, planning was given and this is the result.

Another case of welsh assembly over ruling local planning decisions?

Saw this tonight on the news. I feel for the people who have already bought there and i would think they will be looking at taking some sort of action to get out of there quick. Also as a post above says the builders will struggle to sell the rest of those houses now!!

I grew up in a village where the fields were flooded every year. At least nobody has ever been stupid enough to try to build houses or anything else on them. We always called it ??? by the sea.

The builders say they met all the planning conditions re flooding, if that is correct, it looks like those who advised Denbighshire Planning are at fault.

The statement below is taken from Nathanial Lichfield & Partners website. Wonder how long before it is removed from their portfolio of projects!

...................

"NLP played a major role in the promotion and delivery of this project, an award winning ecohomes excellent, housing development at Glasdir, North Wales.

NLP took the lead role in obtaining planning permission for the development, which involved community consultation, the preparation of a Masterplan and supporting Planning & Design Statements and Design Codes for the 300 dwelling scheme.
NLP’s involvement also extended to providing subsequent urban design advice on submitted schemes"
