Statement from Flood & Coast:

On Monday 16th March, the UK Government issued new guidance urging everyone in the UK to avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Our primary concern is the safety of everyone involved with the Flood and Coast event as well as the wider public. CIWEM and The Environment Agency have taken the decision to postpone Flood and Coast 2020.

We are delighted to announce that we have secured new dates for Flood and Coast 2020 at the Telford International Centre for the 8th – 10th of December 2020. We invite you all to join us for these new dates.
