It replaced existing buildings i.e. grehound facility.

So not a new building on a floodplain from a planning point of view levels wise

Good god, so what you mean if there are previous buildings built in stupid/dangerous places it's legal to build new building on that place, even with basements below ground? Fecking hell, no wonder the country is the way it is. Surely you should have to build higher foundations and/or flood defences into any new buildings on floodplains?

Blackpool & Douglas shopping centres were developed before the flood risk assessment was introduced in '09/'10, these are current building guidelines and are published on every development plan in the country. Like its very difficult to get planning for a building with stilts!

.Floods are acts of God anyway and the council can only do so much with existing buildings and control new developments

Not quite Stacky, I grew up close to that place. Basically the stand and only structures associated with the dog track were built close to the Western Road actually they werw running parallel with it.

I can remember a puddle the size of a lake which was static within the green area in the centre of the track for months on end.

So along came the know alls and they thought it was a good idea to put that building there were nothing was before. I say nothing before as where the original building's once stood is now a traffic lane, footpath and shubbery in front of the badly planned building.

The whole city is a floodplain geographically (it is in the name) the Marsh (Marais as per the Hugenots) and the river between the hills.
