The past 10 years has witnessed a series of significant flooding events that have impacted thousands of households across the UK. In 2015 Defra, commissioned the private sector to devise an action plan to improve the uptake of flood resilience measures in homes and small businesses. This was published in September 2016 as the ‘Property Flood Resilience Roundtable Report’. Since publication implementation of the Plan has commenced. The conference will set out some of the new developments and progress made, including Flood Resilient Repair Demonstrations.
The conference will place the Action Plan within the context of the wider aspects of flood risk management. It will include an international speakers session, providing lessons from around the world. It will also provide delegates with the opportunity to hear from leading insurers and construction industry parties in this field.
