£100m to UK communities hit by recurrent flooding: Communities that have been impacted from repeated flooding will get help with a new ring fenced £100 million grant to protect their properties better.

The Frequently Flooded Allowance will increase access to public funding for these communities, which are frequently smaller areas that need more complex flood schemes.

It will be focused on communities where 10 or more properties have flooded two times or more in the past 10 years, with the funding forecasted to support nearly 80 schemes throughout the next 4 years.

Communities will be chosen through the Environment Agency’s yearly update of the £5.2 billion programme between 2021 – 2027.

In 2022, £700 million is being invested from that lot to protect 35,000 properties better.

“The impacts of climate change are becoming all too familiar both at home and around the world. announced Sir James Bevan, Chief Executive of the Environment Agency.

“While we cannot prevent all flooding, this allowance will help better protect homes & businesses at risk from repeated incidents.

“The Environment Agency has a successful track record in delivering flood & coastal defence schemes across the country, having better protected more than 314000 homes from flooding since 2015.”
