Issue details

Preston Riversway and Broadgate Flood Risk Management Scheme

A flood protection scheme is required to maintain flood defences along the River Ribble in Preston and South Ribble. Through Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Grant in Aid, the Environment Agency is able to fund the necessary works where they apply to people's homes but there is an identified shortfall in funding of around £15m. An opportunity has arisen to make a bid under European Regional Defence Funding PA5 Climate Change for flood defence work relating to the protection of businesses, which if successful would substantially reduce that shortfall.
