Essex Court Chambers & Clarke Willmott – Flooding to Farmland – Who Controls the Floodgates?

Tuesday 24 November 2020

In Association with Essex Court Chambers and Clarke Willmott, ALA Members are invited to attend this webinar on a consistent theme affecting the rural sector.

Flooding is an ever greater issue with what seems to be a possible evolution in our climate, housing estates being built on flood plain and a logical preference of policy makers to protect homes rather than farmland. How far can you protect your own land? If the Environment Agency uses your land, is there a claim against them? How do flood storage areas work and might my land qualify as a flood storage area? What are the implications if it does?

Chaired by Mike Holland, we invite you to join Esther WoolfordRobert MullenHugh Mercer QCJessica Wells and Freddie Popplewell, all experienced litigators with flooding issues, for this webinar discussion.

Time : 12noon to 1pm
