Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with reference to his Department's press release, entitled flood scheme boost with £36 million of funding, published on 27 March 2018, how many schemes were considered for receiving an allocation of that funding but were unsuccessful in securing it.

Answer (Dr Thérèse Coffey)

The £36 million of the £76 million funding announced for flood defence at the Autumn 2017 budget has been allocated to the 37 projects listed below. Twelve of the projects, in Devon and Cumbria, were announced in December and the remaining and the remaining 25 were on 27th March.

Funding was requested and provided for all the schemes that would meet the two criteria :- i) a new project could be completed in the next 3 years; ii) the scheme would either generate sufficient benefits in term of reduced flood risk to qualifying for 100% funding or have a high confidence of securing any partnership contributions needed.
