Weathering the Storm: Preparing for the worst

This was the wettest winter since records began with widespread flooding in many areas of the UK and the tidal surge that hit Lincolnshire in December was the most serious for 60 years. Some time ago, the outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease saw limited access to large parts of the countryside.

A number of workshops took place during March 2014 to help businesses plan for future periods of bad weather and other possible disruptive events.

If you were unable to attend the workshops you can download a copy of the presentation here.
