PROJECT SUMMARY

This project, led by Defra, conducted research on a pilot scheme which offered property-level protection measures such as free flood risk reduction surveys and grants to householders and businesses in Appleby, Cumbria following the Cumbria floods. The study provides evidence to increase the understanding of the effectiveness of the measures, factors influencing their successful deployment in a flood event, and the attitudes to flood protection amongst participants in the scheme, neaby householders and businesses.
