Council bids for small flood project grants

Small projects to make communities across Devon more resistant to flooding could benefit from Government funding.

The county council says it's going to bid for a share of a five million pound 'Community Pathfinder' fund announced by DEFRA.

Separate bids will be drawn up for funding from a different pot of cash.. the 120 million pounds announced at the end of last month.

Councillors hope that'll provide six million pounds towards Exeter's improved flood defences.
