DEFRA Grant Schemes


Following on from the floods in June and July and the ever increasing problem of flooding generally, the DEFRA has looked to set up pilot projects around the country involving local people, local government and the EA in protecting individual properties in 6 pilot areas.  These areas include Leeds, Uckfield, Lancaster, 2 in Cumbria and Bleasby. These pilot schemes are the first wave of projects to be introduced by central government and £500,000 has been allocated.
