The Environment Agency is inviting all Community Flood Action Groups to join them in Telford next week for the largest debate on Flood and Coastal Erosion.
The event will take place at the Telford International Centre, 28-30 March 2017 will host 1500 fellow professionals and groups to exchange a broad range of perspectives on innovation and best practices in Flood and Coastal Risk Management.
Clare Dinnis, Deputy Director, Flood and Coastal Risk Management at the Environment Agency and Chair of the Advisory Committee, said “Community flood groups and local authorities see the whole picture of what affects an area from planning policy through to emergency response and community support. They provide the link between individuals in the community and are often the first point of contact.”
The exhibition and a series of seminars aimed at Community Flood Groups and local authorities are free to attend for all. There is also an in-depth technical conference running alongside the event.
Free seminars include:
* Community Flood Groups in their own words
* Working with us to manage local flood risk

* Community Flood Risk Planning – What Can We Offer?
* People at risk and how can they get involved?
* Working with communities at risk: The Research
