Flood scheme boost with £36m of funding

On 27 March Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey announced the 25 new schemes to receive a share of £36 million  to improve flood protection announced in last year’s Autumn Statement. £33.8 million will be allocated to the 25 schemes over the next three years, in addition to a £2.2 millionalready allocated to 13 projects in Cumbria and Devon at the end of last year.

Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey said:

“This funding will benefit projects across the country from Hull to Gloucester, from Wolverhampton to the Wirral, that need an extra boost for flood defences to help our communities continue to prosper and grow in the future. Not only will this investment make places more resilient against flooding, but it will help the local economy, enhance the natural environment and protect important areas of culture – whether it is the homes, businesses and cultural sites in Hull to the pier in Seahouses or the natural environment in Gloucester.”
