There is much radio and newspaper coverage about problems at this ongoing development in Caister on sea. Land sinking and cracks appearing etc. Why on earth do people insist on building on flood plains?
Does anybody have experience of what is going on there? Will damage be covered by NHBC ?

Similarly, in 2006 the newly built water pumping station in Tewkesbury flooded. Built on a flood plain... when will people learn ?

I suppose buyers of those homes may have the sense of security that their buildings insurance will cough up...

Insurance excess is 1000 usually, and then you have that fateful moment when you come to sell and the purchasers solicitor asks "has there been any settlement, subsidence etc"
I feel for the occupants that are affected. Its not going to make life easier, thats for sure.
