Practical Strategies for Improved Flood Risk Management

Innovative and flexible flood management solutions to help you meet your new responsibilities

A one day conference to examine crucial developments in the area of flooding and risk management is being held in Leeds on 18th September.  With a packed programme and highly-respected speakers, the event promises to provide both clarification on regulatory issues as well as practical advice and recent case studies.

With the introduction of the Flood & Water Management Act in 2010 come a number of new roles and responsibilities for local authorities, regulators and water companies. Its implementation has also led to advances in flood protection, mapping and modelling, and crucially, of actively engaging with local communities and stakeholders.

This Brownfield Briefing conference will explore these points and more in detail. The event will provide up-to-date information for those working in flood risk, planning policy, drainage, engineering and water management. As well as analysis and practical advice, the conference will also highlight a number of case studies on strategy development, partnership funding, Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems and innovative housing solutions.

Engineering Nature’s Way expert panel members Alex Stephenson and David Schofield have both been invited to contribute to the event; Alex will chair a session on Balancing the Demand for New Housing and Development with Increasing Flood Risk.  David Schofield will speak during this session on: Outlining the challenges the planning & development industry face with regards to flood risk and solutions they are finding  to overcome them.
