2012 – Changes to the UK Legislation and supporting documentation

Dr Andy Hughes

This paper will outline changes currently being implemented to the UK legislation via the Flood & Water Management Act 2010. This legislation has driven a change towards a risk based approach.
Significant consultation with the profession and owners has provided an interesting insight to the different and disparate views of owners, engineers and the public.
The guidance documents associated with the Act associated with floods and risk management are currently being rewritten and will be completed by the time of the conference in Perth and so progress with reformatting of those documents will be reported upon.
