Worcester sits on the River Severn, and as such critical transport links, homes and businesses are vulnerable to flooding. Flooding can have devastating personal, environmental and economic costs. It is essential that future-looking investment is made to provide adequate flood defences for the city, and to create flood alleviation and balancing areas that will be able to hold vast quantities of water upstream on land that is designed for this purpose and where flooding will have much less impact, with these being designed to protect the city for at least the next fifty years.
