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 BRE and other partners 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.
Let us have your views 
In order to inform the development of the CoP, a survey has been developed to help understand how PFR is being delivered, and how the CoP can support improved resilience. Property flood resilience in the context of the CoP includes both of the following:
  1. Flood resistance: the use of materials and approaches to prevent water entry into property. 
  2. Flood recoverability: the use of materials, products and construction methods that can be readily restored after flooding. 
The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and can be found here.  

The findings of the survey will be used to help underpin the CoP development. The survey will close on 21 August 2017. 

This project is being funded by Aviva, the Environment Agency, Scottish Government, Welsh Government and the Department for Infrastructure, Northern Ireland.
