Making Space for Water is one of three pilot projects nationwide to receive a total of £1 million of Defra funding to demonstrate how our natural resources can help protect against flooding.
The funding is part of £28 million which DEFRA has allocated to fund projects that help communities adapt to changing flood risk in the face of climate change.
The other two projects are:
Slowing the Flow at Pickering – Project managed by the Forestry Commission
Holnicote Estate – Project managed by the National Trust
