Hodgson View: EA stalls overdue PFR framework bids

An article in the Guardian recently featured news of the Environment Agency's decision to withdraw its framework packages for property flood resilience (PFR).

Guest blog: Going all-electric - Good? Bad? Frustrating?

This week we are sharing a guest blog from fellow PCA member, Douglas Anderson of JBB Knotweed Solutions. Back in 2022 they made the decision to shift to a fully electric fleet for their teams... but how's it going? What are the good, the bad and the somewhat frustrating aspects of going all-electric if you're considering this too?
