The Environment Agency is delivering a proposed Flood Risk Management Scheme to better protect homes and business from flooding in the Kent catchment, and improve the local environment and community amenities. Kendal is the first area to be delivered, followed by Burneside, Staveley, and Ings, and upstream measures including flood storage. In addition, Natural Flood Management measures are being integrated into the plans which aim to slow the flow of water and provide wider environmental benefits across the catchment.
The site visit will include a presentation with an overview of the project. This will then be followed by talks from some key members of the site team explaining how they got into the construction industry. We will then conclude the visit with a tour around one of our sites.
