Venue: HR Wallingford
|Event Date/Time: Dec 04, 2001||End Date/Time: Dec 05, 2001|
|Registration Date: Dec 02, 2001|
Day 1 examines the latest research into catchment flood management, flood risk and options for self help to reduce flood damage. A display of products designed to improve the flood resistance of buildings will also be on show during the day.
The focus for Day 2 is PPG25. This new national guidance sets out the issues that should be considered when drawing up local development plans, and is relevant to developers and all others involved in planning and development. Delegates will be given the opportunity to find out what PPG25 really means for them. They will gain an understanding of the key isses and actions needed to undertake risk assessments through presentations and practical examples. Current relevant research into Sustainable Urban Drainage will also be presented.
This seminar is modular - delegates can choose to attend on either day or stay for both days.
