A Review on Blue Roofs in new UK Constructions
  Flooding causes significant risk to the UK’s infrastructure and the need for additional stormwater management systems is growing rapidly. The demand for housing, lack of land, cramped housing with no gardens, urban cooling, air pollution and aesthetics are all the issues that the Blue Roof System (BRS) can assist with. This paper reveals that there is a lack of knowledge, research and understanding of terminology for BRS in the UK construction and therefore more research and data collection is required to increase the utilisation of these systems. The government planning policies should be encouraging/enforcing flood risk management systems to be implemented as standard with financial incentives.
