The Environment Agency is investing more than £2.6 Billion across England to reduce the risk of flood and coastal erosion, enhancing the environment and benefitting more than 300,000 homes by 2021. The impact of flooding is clear to us all and is increasing due to climate change and population growth.

On Teesside in December 2013 an east coast tidal surge caused flooding to multiple industrial and residential properties in Port Clarence. At the same time, the south east embankment of Greatham Creek suffered a significant breach causing widespread flooding and disruption to local industry and key locally and nationally important infrastructure. The first phase of work at Port Clarence was completed in 2015 building new raised embankments and removable / demountable flood defences.
