Details

There are many inherent dangers on flood and coastal risk management sites and in many locations equipment is provided for the safety of the public who have gone outside to experience the beauty of the natural environment. A new report from the Environment Agency/Defra provides guidance for those responsible for the management of such sites so that they can be confident that the safety of the public is maintained whilst the natural beauty of our countryside is not compromised.
