Ebbsfleet is one of two case studies which serve to test and showcase the outcomes of the urban flood resilience research project. Ebbfleet has a strong focus on new build applications.
A Learning and Action Alliance (LAA) has recently been established in Ebbsfleet, with core partners including the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation. The Urban Flood Resilience team are another core member and will help coordinate meetings and activities.
A summary of past and planned meetings, as well as selected downloadble outcomes, can be found below.
If your interests and/or professional responsibilites align with the vision of the Ebbsfleet LAA, and you wish to know more about becoming a member, please e-mail Tudor Vilcan.
Members are invited to attend and become actively involved in LAA meetings, which are held approximately bi-monthly and cover a range of topics.
As an area develops, it can become a blue-green city if water management and urban greening are woven into its design.
The flow of rainwater through the system is managed by mimicking natural processes, including interception, attenuation, evapotranspiration, infitration and storage. When combined, these processes create resilience to flood risk and other hazards related to climate change, while realising significant positive benefits in other areas, including health, biodiversity, recreation, urban cooling, education, economic activity and development.
By creating the Ebbsfleet LAA we aim to champion urban flood resilience through its vision of encouraging the realistic delivery of sustainable water management in the urban environment.
