SE6052 : Why all the skips?

Why all the skips?
Why all the skips?
Nos. 36 - 24a Huntington Road seen from just south of the junction with Park Grove. Being an offcomer, I had to ask why every house in this row and the one to the left seemed to be having building work done. It was explained that at 2015 December every one of these houses had been flooded to about half a metre deep because the relevant authorities had taken the agonizing decision to raise the Foss Barrier and let the River Ouse flood back up into the Foss (behind these houses). Now every house is having to replace flooring and furniture.
