The programme of flood and coastal erosion risk management schemes for all risk management authorities during 2014/15 and beyond.
Programme of flood and coastal erosion risk management schemes
In 2014/15, we investing £344 million in new and ongoing flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCRM) schemes. 42 new schemes have been confirmed for 2014/15, bringing the total number starting construction this year to 55. Once complete they will reduce the risk of flooding for around 43,000 houses across England.
Funding for FCRM schemes in 2014/15
A combination of government money (FCRM grant in aid), partnership contributions and local levies will pay for the schemes in 2014/15.
Our FCRM programme is colour coded. The schemes starting in 2014/15 are on the green list. The schemes we expect to start between 2015/16 and 2020/21 are on the amber list. Schemes on the red list are either not ready to start, need to demonstrate better value for money to be eligible for government funding or find additional partnership contributions.
Local authorities and internal drainage boards can only claim FCRM grant in aid towards their FCRM projects which are in the green and blue list (excluding emergency works). This is also known as the sanctioned list.

Before you download the programme of works, read our terms and conditions
as they explain how you can use our data. The FCRM schemes programme for 2014/15 is an excel spreadsheet with multiple worksheets. It’s a good idea to read the first worksheet because it provides supporting information about the data.

Schemes with largest spend
Spend may be government money, partnership contributions, local levy or a mixture.
Growth funding schemes - update
In 2012, we used £120m of additional government funding to accelerate existing schemes and start new schemes to provide FCRM benefit and local economic growth. When complete, we expect the schemes to reduce the risk of flooding to over 34,000 houses, help create 30,000 jobs and support development of 400ha of land (subject to compliance with sustainable development requirements).
Flood recovery funding
Since the start of December 2013, we have experienced the biggest coastal flooding event for 60 years, and the wettest January ever in parts of the country. The government has provided an additional £130 million over 2014/15 and 2015/16 to ensure that we restore critical defences. We will work closely with local partners and communities across the country to assess and repair damages as quickly as possible.
