The long historical background to flood defence is outlined. It is noted that many of the concerns and approaches are not new. However in some areas changes are occurring. The freshwater flooding across much of England and Wales in spring 1998 hastened new approaches to the relationship between flood defence agencies and the public. Recent published guidance on flood proof construction is described and reviewed and a role for the building surveyor is identified.
