09 June 2020 - 23 June 2020
Whilst engineered flood defences, flood warnings, upper catchment measures and a wide range of other flood risk management interventions are making a real improvement to the number of households and businesses impacted by record flood events such as those seen this winter, there will be increasing need for resilience to be built into individual properties.
There is a need to rapidly increase the number of homes made more resilient through the installation of property flood resilience (PFR) measures. Whether by ‘building back better’ after a flood, or acting to ensure that when the next event occurs, properties will be impacted for days and not months or years, PFR must be rolled out in many communities.
Hear from those affected this winter about how PFR might have made all the difference to them. Learn about pathfinder projects set up to learn lessons on community engagement. Understand the requirements of the Code of Practice and debate how this growing industry must develop to ensure that access to PFR is affordable and equitable, and delivered to an appropriate standard.
