UK’s Flood and Coastal Erosion Plan

Between April 2015 and March 2021, the government will invest £2.3 billion in more than 1,500 projects across England.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) investment plan sets out how this commitment will transform flood and coastal erosion risk management over the coming 6 years.

The program of work that this funding will support will reduce flood risk to more than 300,000 households by March 2021. The 6 year investment program was also published as an interactive map. The map is currently unavailable as it is being updated. It will be available again on 8 July 2015.

As a result of making funding available sooner and making project management savings, 212 projects will benefit. This means:

  • 47 new projects are now in the 6 year program;
  • 165 projects that were already in the program will receive funding sooner;
  • 80 projects will start at least 3 years earlier than planned.

The program of flood and coastal erosion risk management investment and accelerated schemes includes projects developed by local authorities, internal drainage boards and the Environment Agency. These risk management authorities work with communities to develop schemes.
