Flood Defence 60 Flood Alleviation Schemes announced for 2013 60 Schemes

25,000 Properties better protected £2.17Bn of Government Investment £72M Partnership Funding

As well as the 60 new schemes, 80 schemes still in progress will still continue to receieve funding

Over 25,000 more homes will be better protected from the effects of flooding by new defence schemes to start construction in the next financial year, Defra and the Environment Agency have confirmed today.

In total, 60 flood and coastal risk schemes will begin construction this year. Those given the go ahead today include Warrington in Cheshire, protecting over 1900 households, Salmons Brook in North London, protecting over 1300 households, and Godmanchester in Cambridgeshire, protecting over 300 households.

Exceeding targets

New estimates also show that the Environment Agency is now on track to exceed its target of better protecting 145,000 homes by 2015. Thanks to the new partnership funding approach, which encourages funding from external sources such as councils and businesses, over £72million of contributions have been secured to help fund flood and coastal erosion schemes on top of the £2.17 billion Defra is investing in preventing flooding during this spending period to 2015.

Regional Flood and Coastal Committees have worked with local communities to attract flood defence funding from sources such as councils, businesses and private investors. This Partnership Funding approach was introduced in May 2011 to encourage

The Partnership Funding model targets areas of severe flood and coastal erosion risk, and homes in deprived communities. Of the 145,000 homes that will be better protected by 2015, around half are in areas of significant flood risk and almost 15,000 households are both at significant flood risk and in the most deprived parts of the country. Partnership Funding gives local people greater choice about what flood protection is provided in their area.

In Cockermouth, £3.3 million funding from Defra makes up part of the funding to enable a flood scheme to be built in the town, which the local community and local councils have also committed to help fund.

A scheme in Water End, York, which was turned down for funding last year, is going ahead after the Environment Agency worked with York City Council to agree a package of cost reductions and partnership contributions.

As well as the flood schemes that will progress as result of this year’s funding, the allocation for 2012/13 also covers maintenance of existing defences. The Environment Agency has also committed to increasing the number of people receiving free flood warnings to over 1.1 million.
