The January 2024 Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Report revealed that 500 of the 2,000 flood defence schemes will no longer receive necessary investment in the current funding program (2021-2027). This means a decrease in the number of protected homes from 336,000 to 200,000 and broader impacts on communities relying on flood defence investment. This briefing from the TCPA (Town & Country Planning Association) explores the implications of this major downgrading of flood defence works in England.
