    Evening Meeting: Benefits of Integrated Planning

    18:00 start (17:30 refreshments)
    20:00 Approx.

    Location: Oxford

    Our infrastructure transverses scales.  From a United Kingdom that is reliant on the world to towns and cities reliant on boroughs and counties.  Infrastructure operating at these scales can be mutually dependent and reliant on external factors.  This seminar will present examples of where strategic and detailed evidence bases are being prepared to develop integrated plans.

    Ed Byers (University of Oxford) will introduce modelling the water footprint of the UK electricity system, from the catchment to the national scale, describing how this fits into the national infrastructure 'system of systems' model of the Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium.

    Adam Cambridge (Atkins) will discuss techniques that are being used to develop integrated asset management plans and sustainable urban water solutions.

    Branch Annual Seminar: Flood Risk Management and the Water Framework Directive - harmony or conflict?

    09:00
    16:30

    Location:

    Reading

    Join us for this 1 day seminar which will explore how these two themes can often work together or against one another.

    Historic flood risk management (FRM) techniques have caused widespread damage to river and coastal hydromorpholoy.The Water Framework Directive (WFD) requires the restoration of such historic damage and the avoidance of further degradation, integrating FRM objectives with other aspects of river basin planning. Balancing these objectives can be challenging but rewarding, with potential to offer widespread
    sustainability benefits and unlock multiple funding streams.

    We will have 6 speakers at this one day seminar, each presenting a topic under the event theme:


    Duncan Huggett - Environment Agency
    Darren Lumbroso - HR Wallingford
    Nick Jarritt - Amec Foster Wheeler
    Jenny Phelps - Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group
    Paul Chapman - Lewisham Borough Council
    Jo Cullis - CH2M Hill
