Institution of Civil Engineers event: Draft Floods and Water Bill

February 26, 2009

ICE are organising a breakfast meeting at which the draft Floods and Water Bill will be discussed.  The Bill aims to clarify responsibilities, create a simpler, more effective regime for coastal erosion and flood risk management and will introduce measures for the improved sustainability of water resources.

The Bill builds on existing flood and water legislation and responds to the Pitt Review and the Government’s Water Strategy 2008.

Time & date: 7.45 to 9.45 am, Tuesday 24th March.

Venue:  Sir Colin Campbell Building, University of Nottingham.
