The Argus: Have your say: Should more be done to prevent flooding in Sussex? Have your say: Should more be done to prevent flooding in Sussex?

Flooding is once again threatening to affect thousands of Sussex homes.

Weeks of heavy rain and gale force winds have already seen swathes of the county deluged.

And the weather is set to combine with high tides with warnings of coastal flooding.

We want to know if you think more should be done to try and prevent flooding in the county.

Would you buy a house in a flood risk area?

Of course more should be done. The real question is what should be protected and how much it will cost?

Perhaps if the Government hadn't cut the flood prevention budget by 27% in 2011/12, a lot more homes could have been protected - in many cases we are just talking about a earth bank or a brick wall.
