We’re investing in flood defences to protect people’s homes.
Thanks to our long-term economic plan, we can invest in the future infrastructure that the UK needs, including flood defences.
Under Labour, billions were wasted on inefficient and ineffective spending and not nearly enough was invested in flood defences.
We’re investing £2.3 billion in over 1,400 flood defence projects to better protect at least 300,000 homes – so families are more secure and have greater peace of mind for the future.
This is part of our National Infrastructure Plan for roads, railways, housing and flood defences, and ensures Britain has modern infrastructure fit for the 21st century.
The investment is only possible because of the difficult decisions we’ve taken as we work through our long-term economic plan to build a stronger, healthier economy.
That plan is securing a better future – and giving security to hardworking families.
