Code of Practice and guidance for property flood resilience - RP1055

Property flood resilience (PFR) is an important part of our response to managing flood risk. CIRIA together with a consortium led by BRE is managing a project to develop a robust and authoritative code of practice (CoP) and consolidated guidance that provides a standardised approach for the delivery and management of PFR.

The outputs from this project will improve confidence in property flood resilience and subsequent take-up.

A standalone CoP for property flood resilience, Combined CoP and guidance for property flood resilience and complementary guides for households and businesses as well as local authority planners will be available. 

The standalone CoP is available now and the guidance will be available in 2020.
