Burton Flood Risk Management Scheme is a scheme to protect 4500 homes and 1000 businesses from the River Trent. The project is a 4.5 year construction project costing over £30m.

Topics will be stakeholder engagement, external funding, collaborative working, public relations, project management, risk management and scheme delivery.

Delegates will learn lessons from how the scheme was delivered and the associated challenges and opportunities that we came across during the scheme.
