Yorkshire Flood Resilience launches property flood resilience survey

Take our Property Flood Resilience (PFR) survey and help us raise PFR awareness across Yorkshire.

Following the conclusion of the Yorkshire Flood Resilience Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Pathfinder project we’re inviting anybody who lives, works, or operates in Yorkshire to share their feedback.

Commencing in September 2019, this project forms part of the Government’s plan to create a nation that’s ready for and resilient to climate change. By supporting the Yorkshire Integrated Catchment Solutions Programme (iCASP) at the University of Leeds and City of York Council as a key project partner, we have been able to play an active role in doing this.

Over the course of the past 12 months the JBA and iCASP teams have been helping to identify the barriers that exist to the uptake of PFR and how to address this. Firstly, by raising awareness of the benefits and levels of take-up of PFR – and secondly by supporting the Yorkshire Pathfinder project team to develop tools to help individuals, businesses and communities understand their own flood risk.

Yorkshire Flood Resilience Survey

Following the conclusion of the project we’re now entering a three-month evaluation period to assess the impact of change and to share any useful lessons and insights with Defra, the Environment Agency and local authorities across the country. This will help shape future work aimed at supporting the Environment Agency’s ambition to mainstream PFR; and help encourage wider take-up of PFR by property owners at flood risk.

To take part in the evaluation of this important study please follow this link and complete the short PFR survey.
