​Baca advise RIBA policy team

Vision Event, London 2-3 June 2015 – Amphibious And Flood-Resilient Homes Workshop

TWEETS

The RIBA contacted Baca to review their discussion points with the floods minister Rory Stewart on the first week back in the New Year. Baca were pleased to have the opportunity to raise their concerns that SUDS was not being implemented and where resilience measures were required through planning that they were not necessarily being implemented. We made the call for flood resilience to be made part of the building regulations such that even if work does not require planning consent that it should still fall under the building regulations. This would be particularly relevant for insurance claims to repair flood-damaged property, which would be required to make improvements, by law. We also wanted to encourage the role of new development in making space for water rather than a simple blanket ban on all development in areas of flood-risk.
