The new CIRIA Code of Practice and guidance for property flood resilience – RP1055 is now available

Posted: 13/12/19

A consortium led by Building Research Establishment BRE and CIRIA are managing a project to develop a robust guide that provides a standardised approach for the delivery and management of Property Flood Resilience PFR.

The new Code of Practice and guidance for PFR aims to “improve confidence in property flood resilience and subsequent take-up”.

The Code of Practice and guidance is being funded by Aviva, the Environment Agency, Scottish Government, Welsh Government and the Department for Infrastructure, Northern Ireland. The initiative was developed as over 2.4million UK properties are at risk from river and coastal flooding and a further 2.7 million are at risk from surface water flooding.

The Code of Practice is available now and the guidance will be available in 2020.
