star this property answer text <p>These recommendations were put forward by Sir Michael Pitt following the floods of summer 2007 as part of the independent Pitt Review. This review included 92 recommendations aimed at improving the way the risk of flooding is managed in the UK. The final progress report on the implementation of these recommendations was published on 27 January 2012. The full report can be found on GOV.UK here:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-s-response-to-sir-michael-pitts-review-of-the-summer-2007-floods-final-progress-report" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-s-response-to-sir-michael-pitts-review-of-the-summer-2007-floods-final-progress-report</a></p><p>Since the Pitt Review was published in 2008, Cabinet Office, working with other Government Departments, has followed a systematic programme to enhance the resilience of the UK. As such the majority of recommendations made by Sir Michael Pitt have now been implemented. This includes the production of Sector Resilience Plans, classified documents which have been annually since 2010, the establishment of a Cabinet Committee on Flooding, and ongoing work with industry and local resilience forums to ensure essential services can continue in the face of disruptive challenges, including worst case flooding events.</p><p> </p>
