CEP working with UWE and Defra on 'Supporting the Uptake of Low Cost Resilience for Properties at Risk of Flooding'
CEP are part of the University of the West of England led team working on the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) “Supporting the Uptake of Low Cost Resilience for Properties at Risk of Flooding” project.
The project’s aim is to identify barriers and propose solutions to promote low cost flood approaches that would make properties at flood risk more resilient to damage from flood waters. It includes gathering evidence, good practice and case studies of flood repairable approaches to be tested using an action research approach which will be evaluated so that lessons can be documented and shared. CEP is leading on the evaluation.
The project runs from May 2015 – Feb 2016.
