Project Title

Achieving urban flood resilience in an uncertain future

Brief summary of project

The project aims to enable the co-ordinated planning, design and operation of closely coupled urban water systems necessary to achieve transformative change in urban flood risk and water management. It investigates how planning, design, operation and organisation of both existing and new urban water systems might be envisaged and transformed in order to deliver multiple benefits (including flood resilience) under flood, normal. This includes research that explores citizens' interactions with blue-green and grey infrastructure. Specifically to demonstrate how citizens’ priorities and the reality of their lifestyles, communities, and neighbourhoods affect their understanding of and support for B/G+G innovation.

Item Type: Dataset
Methodology: For the purposes of this research, a postal survey was developed and mailed out to two different UK sites: • 1750 houses within 750m of Study Site 1 (England, new development, fig.1), SuDS ponds installed in a development cell around the time of construction, three miles from the centre of a major conurbation.; • 2467 houses within 500m of Study Site 2 (Northern Ireland, retrofit, fig.2), a retrofitted renaturalised river with improved aesthetics and amenity provision, running through a park in the centre of a major conurbation. The survey collected demographic information and attitudinal information through principally five-point Likert-score based (Strongly Like/Agree – Strongly Dislike/Disagree, plus a small number of open-text response boxes to elicit more information. The surveys asked for opinions about the BGI services; frequency and reasons for visiting; awareness and understanding of flood risk and belief that the BGI might help, and thoughts about stewardship.
