We’re excited to be part of the Yorkshire Property Flood Resilience Pathfinder project and to be raising awareness of property flood resilience (PFR) at the upcoming National Flood Forum conference in York on 5th March 2020.
What is the Yorkshire Property Flood Resilience Pathfinder project?
The Yorkshire Property Flood Resilience Pathfinder is one of three national Defra commissioned projects running between September 2019 and March 2021. The project is being led by the City of York Council, and we are pleased to be partnered with Integrated Catchment Solutions Partnership (iCASP) at the University of Leeds to produce a property flood resilience benchmarking survey and project evaluation.
Our property flood resilience benchmarking survey has been launched this week.
If you live, work or operate in Yorkshire and have been affected by flooding, we are keen to hear your views. Your contribution through this survey will help lead to the development of new initiatives being undertaken throughout 2020 to help improve awareness of and overcome potential barriers to the uptake of Property Flood Resilience.
If you’re attending the National Flood Forum conference in York on 5th March 2020 there will also be the opportunity to complete the PFR survey for anyone who lives, works or operates in Yorkshire – and who would like to share their views on and experiences of property flood resilience.
Recent launch of Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Code of Practice
Our partnership work with the Yorkshire Property Flood Resilience Pathfinder project is part of our on-going involvement in the area of property flood resilience. The recently launched Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Code of Practice has been developed by an industry-wide steering group, including our own Associate Director Peter May, and provides six standards that are expected in the delivery of PFR. Property flood resilience (PFR) is an important part of our response to existing and predicted flood risks.
