Housing and Planning Bill: Crucial clause on flood prevention

A vital new measure in the Housing and Planning Bill has been proposed by the House of Lords that will help ensure essential flood prevention measures are put in place at new housing developments.

We support the measures in Amendment 110, as it will lead to a significant step forward in UK water management and flood resilience.

Water companies across the UK are responsible for managing drains and sewers around people’s homes. The terrible flooding last winter in the UK was yet another reminder of why a wide range of effective measures are needed to protect people and prevent their homes from being ruined.
