On 5 April industry experts debated the future of flood resilience in the UK – watch the debate here

The panel considered questions arising from Bonfield’s review and its recommendations to change regulation, and put more responsibility on homeowners to flood proof their homes, including:

  • Who will pay for this?
  • What are the key changes that will make a critical difference?
  • What is the industry’s role in making the action plan a reality?

A select audience of the UK’s top contractors, consulting engineers, civil engineers and building services engineers will have the chance to have their say and ask questions of the panel.
