Flood Meadows Flood and have done since time immemorial

Whilst not every York flood has been as bad as 2015 or 2000, for the most of the last 25 years we have seen flooding. Normally in winter, but since 2000 there have been floods probably covering every calendar month of the year. When we took over the management of Rawcliffe Meadows in 1991 we were probably naive regarding the what were then annual floods, but whilst the resultant damage and clearance is a nuisance the flood role, and its natural value to the environment and its practical value to the City of York are incalculable. What we need are more flood meadows not less.
