In year changes to the capital programme budgets for priority flood works

Following consideration at Cabinet on 23 July 2020, approve the allocation of funding for priority flood damage repairs and for works to enhance the resilience of the county’s infrastructure.
The Bellwin scheme will not fund all repair needs following flooding in February 2020. With no further funding having been specifically made available by Government for recovery from Storm Dennis, the significant gap between what Bellwin provides and the cost of all necessary repairs must be met from within the capital programme. This report sets out the Cabinet’s recommendations from their consideration of the funding options from across the capital programme and including the allocation of capital funding available following the announcement of Pothole and Challenge Fund allocations for 2020/21.
