Three projects will receive up to £700,000 each to research and test ways to make homes more flood resilient.

The projects across Yorkshire, Devon and Cornwall and central England will aim to boost the uptake of property-level measures to reduce the impact of flooding.

Environment minister, Thérèse Coffey, said: ‘I am delighted to award funding to the pathfinder flood resilience projects in the Ox-Cam arc, Yorkshire and the South West.

'I expect the councils and organisations involved will increase the take up of property resilience measures by home owners and businesses, making their properties safer, and quicker to return to if flooding does happen.’

The Oxford-Cambridge Pathfinder will promote and install property flood resilience to ten communities most at risk of flooding.

The Yorkshire Future Flood Resilience Pathfinder project will establish a community hub and learning lab to help encourage greater uptake of property flood resilience measures.

The South West Partnership project will focus on local innovation to enhance the future take-up of property flood resilience measures.
