Property flood resilience action plan launched in UK
A new, independent report launched today in the UK will help people better protect their homes and businesses from risk of flooding and recover more quickly if the worst happens.
The Property Flood Resilience Action Plan is the result of collaboration between central government, the Environment Agency, insurers, surveyors, materials producers, the legal profession and flood action groups.
It covers assistance for flood victims, small businesses, building standards and certification, and better communication to change behaviour. In all these areas, the report looked to highlight barriers and long-term solutions to better prepare the UK for flooding.
The Property Flood Resilience Action Plan,chaired by Dr Peter Bonfield, brings together Government and industry and establishes an action plan to ensure property owners are better equipped to prepare for flooding and get back into homes and business sooner if it does.
