“With global average CO2 concentrations now at over 400 parts per million, rainfall and floods that were originally expected only once every 100 hundred years.. [have been] hitting towns and cities two, three and more times over the last decade…”

The draft of the strategy is open for public consultation until 16 October. Do get involved and have a say in Manchester’s future (and perhaps collect some valuable ideas, in case you suddenly have to take decisions).
