CIRIA’s C751 and C752 Available

CIRIA’s new guidance Communication and engagement in local flood risk management (C751) and Communication and engagement in local flood risk management techniques the companion guide (C752) are now available.

Local authorities have the responsibility for managing local flood risk (often defined as surface runoff, groundwater and ordinary watercourses). These new CIRIA guides share good practice drawing together vast experience and ideas from practitioners and the industry that have been tried and tested.

Paul Shaffer, Associate, CIRIA, said: “Planning regulations should be delivering good flood risk management in new developments. However, it is often within existing developments and communities that the greatest challenges in local flood risk management can be found. These guidance documents should provide anyone managing local flood risk with the confidence to engage with communities and deliver approaches to effectively manage flood risks and wherever possible deliver other benefits and rewards for all concerned.”

The guides will assist communication teams as well as flood risk managers, drainage engineers and planners within lead local flood authorities (LLFAs) and district authorities so they are better equipped to communicate and engage effectively with the public on local flood risk management.
