Flood Defence and Pollution Control: Statutory Powers and Compensation

May 16, 2017

Six Pump Court presents the second in our series of environmental and public law seminars to be held this year:

Flood Defence and Pollution Control: Statutory Powers and Compensation

Flood damage is an increasing threat. A variety of statutory powers are entrusted to the Environment Agency, local authorities and others under various Acts and the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2016 in respect of flood defence, flood risk management, drainage, water pollution and water quality. Difficult questions arise as to the right to any compensation and its inter-relationship with other causes of action. This seminar will consider the nature and extent of the powers available to regulators and the obligations and rights of those affected.
