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, supporting guidance on the CoP and complementary guides for households and businesses as well as local authority planners.
