Green Light for Trent Flood Protection Scheme

Following public consultation with residents, North Lincolnshire Council is ready to press ahead with a £13.3m flood defense scheme to protect towns and villages on both sides of the Trent, according to the council’s latest announcement.

The building contract for the Trent flood defenses has been awarded to VBA Joint Venture (VolkerStevin) who will start on site in January 2018 after preparatory works have been completed.

Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This extensive flood defense scheme will not only protect our existing villages on both sides of the Trent, it will provide protection for future generations in the six new Trentside villages planned for North Lincolnshire.”

“The billion-pound Lincolnshire Lakes project is the largest investment of its kind in North Lincolnshire and will transform our area so it is vital that we get it right.

“Thanks to these new flood defenses we can give residents, both current and future, peace of mind that their homes and communities are protected.”

North Lincolnshire Council secured the £13.3m funding from the government’s Northern Powerhouse Local Growth Fund, awarded by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The project is due to be completed in March 2019.
