Subject: FW: Questionnaire on Property Flood Resilience

Hello,

See below link to survey on Property Flood Resilience and context. If you could distribute in any upcoming public communications that would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

Kind regards,

The Scottish Government and ClimateXChange want to assess the uptake of Property Flood Resilience (PFR) across Scotland in order to identify areas which may benefit from PFR, and encourage more local authorities to set up PFR schemes. JBA Consulting have been commissioned to carry out a review of PFR in Scotland on behalf of ClimateXChange and the Scottish Government.  JBA have set up an online questionnaire are part of this research project to be completed during February.

PFR can include a range of measures to reduce the damage that flooding can cause to buildings. This can include installing flood doors, air brick covers, hard floors and ensuring that electrics are raised off ground level around the home. The measures can significantly reduce the amount of time people are out of their home following a flood.

The survey can be accessed via the following link which will take you to a Microsoft questionnaire.  There are 28 questions and it should take 10-15 minutes to complete. We would also encourage you to share this link with any other community groups, households and businesses that may have installed Property Flood Resilience measures in Scotland.

If you require any further clarification or want to discuss the questionnaire please email scotpfr@jbaconsulting.com and one of our team will be happy to discuss this with you.

Property Flood Resilience (PFR) measures can significantly reduce the risk of flood water entering a property. PFR measures can help make a property more resilient to the physical impacts of flooding and the emotional impact to a person caused by flooding. PFR measures are often broken down into ‘Resistance’ and ‘Resilience’ measures:

1) Resistance measures aim to keep floodwater outside the property. Measures include door guards, airbrick covers, non-return valves and sump/pump for example.

2) Resilience measures limit damage caused as a result of water entering a property. This includes measures such as waterproof plaster, raised electric sockets, solid concrete floors and tiled floor coverings. Measures aims to reduce flood damage and shorten the recovery time after a flood.

The Scottish Government and ClimateXChange want to assess the uptake of PFR across Scotland in order to identify areas which may benefit from PFR, and encourage more local authorities to set up PFR schemes. JBA Consulting have been commissioned to carry out a review of PFR in Scotland and this questionnaire is part of understanding PFR uptake and performance. The study includes both domestic and non-domestic properties.

There are 28 questions to be completed in this questionnaire. Some may not be applicable. We anticipate that this will take 10-15 mins to complete.
