Dr Dick Fenner, a Reader in Engineering Sustainability at the University of Cambridge’s Engineering Department, is s a member of a consortium led by the University of Nottingham. Dr Fenner is helping to analyse the benefits of blue-green infrastructure, which can help prevent flooding while providing environmental, socio-cultural, economic and ecological benefits to the population. By working with stakeholders throughout their programme of work, the team have already secured a commitment from Newcastle City Council to implement a blue-green infrastructure approach.
