Public consultations of updated flood risk management plans start on 22 December 2020 and last until 22 September 2021. The consultation meetings will be held in 28 cities and towns in Poland. Their essence is the conversion of general methodology-related assumptions and conclusions drawn from analytical works carried out to specific actions protecting residents, economy, environment and cultural heritage in areas of particular river basins. The venues and dates of meetings are presented in the map below:
Due to the restrictions connected with SARS-CoV-2 pandemics and the unknown date of their release, we have prepared an alternative meeting formula.
Face-to-face meetings – organised if the restrictions are released in whole or when it is possible to hold a meeting for more than 100 participants. We will inform you about the meeting venues at www.stoppowodzi.pl
Online meetings – if the current restrictions are maintained (meeting limited to 5 people). The meetings will be organised on a dedicated platform, called Webex, which you will be able to access with no need to log in throughout the whole meeting duration.
We will notify you of the selected meeting formula 4 weeks before its planned date. The meeting enrolment forms will be available 3 weeks before each meeting.
