Environment Agency £1.3M grant to pay for flood defence products

The Environment Agency today announced £1.3M worth of grants for flood defence products such as barriers and airbrick covers to be purchased for 500 properties in areas of high flood risk.

Local authority recipients of the grants include Pickering in North Yorkshire, where 20 properties will benefit from the funding.

In the South West, Cornwall Council has contributed £29,000 of its own money which will be combined with its share of the Environment Agency grant to protect 43 properties.

A similar grant of £2M was allocated earlier this year to 600 properties in areas including Bilton and Kirby Mills in Yorkshire, Dovecot in Liverpool and Dover in Kent. Local authorities in England will distribute the grants.
