This photograph, taken by Damien Dyer, has sparked a Facebook debate about flooding in King’s Sutton and its potential impact on new housing developments.
Resident Sue Furssedonn posted : “Hope the developers see this! A flood plain is there for a reason and not to be built on or built near if it’s to do its job.” Forty new homes are currently being built next to water meadows in the village by Banner Homes. Another resident questioned why anyone would want to build in a village often nicknamed “Boglands”. To see the photo online visit http://www.flickr.com/people/tupperware_pilot
