ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request made by the Local Government Association (LGA) for the British government to release an action plan to reduce the flood risk nationwide. In response, the government initiated plans of increasing the fund for flood defenses to £800 million by 2010-2011. Councillor Paul Bettison, chairman of LGA's Environment board, stated that it is a positive move but delays on investing in flood prevention may cause a repeat of the devastation on the lives of the people and the economy in summer 2007.
