    A good deal of flooding in Cornwall could be avoided by not building on old water courses that were merely filled in.

    Cornwall needs to stop filling in, and prevent building over top of old or current drainage routes, and have a long range plan to restore old water courses as ribbons of nature throughout the city.

    The Courtauld’s property might be a good start; instead of shoulder to shoulder housing, create proper lots and respect some of what was there long ago, before industry ruined it.
