This report by Leeds University gathers together evidence from the flood that occurred in York and some villages and areas to the South of the city (Bishopthorpe, Acaster Malbis, Cawood and Naburn) during Autumn 2012. It draws on interviews and observation with residents and businesses and provides a set of recommendations aimed at increasing local resilience to floods. The main focus of this report and its recommendations is on the transport sector and on mobility issues.
It is clear however, that the impacts and responses go well beyond the transport sector. The non-transport implications are also considered and additional recommendations which go beyond the transport sector are made.
