Launch of new resource on the role of planning in flood and coastal resilience
This free event will launch the new video resource produced by the Environment Agency and Town & Country Planning Association which breaks down and explains the role of Town & Country Planning in flood and coastal resilience.
Flooding is among the most serious impacts of climate change. It has devastating and long-lasting impacts on people and their communities, as well as major impacts on our economy. If existing development trends continue in line with projects population growth, we expect to see a near doubling of properties in the floodplain in the next 50 years.
The new film outlines the steps that can be taken through Town & Country planning to enable sustainable and climate resilient development. It is aimed at local planning authority officers and elected members in England, as well as planning school students and anyone else with an interest in planning for flood risk.
