Northumberland Council Welcomes Flood Defence Investment

Plans to invest millions improving flood defenses in the region have been welcomed by Northumberland County Council.

Investment projects in the county for 2016/17, highlighted by the Northumbria Regional Flood and Coastal Committee (NRFCC), include Blyth Tidal Flood Alleviation Scheme, Haltwhistle Flood Alleviation Scheme and the Morpeth Surface Water Flood Alleviation Scheme.

Council leader Grant Davey said: “Protecting and improving the infrastructure of all our towns is vital if they are to continue to flourish and a number of important schemes are in the pipeline for the coming year.

“Our additional spend on flood defenses in Morpeth has already paid off, protecting the town during the winter storms.”

Along with the flood defense works being carried out, the council is also well underway with its own £15 million repair program to repair the damage inflicted on the roads network by the winter’s wet weather.
