Rebecca Pow – 2022 Comments on Isle of Wight Coastal Defence Scheme

The comments made by Rebecca Pow, the Floods Minister, on 16 February 2022.

This vital £7 million in funding will bring the Isle of Wight coastal defence scheme one step closer to beginning construction, and once completed will see more than 3,700 island homes and businesses better protected from flooding and coastal erosion.

This funding is just one part of our record £5.2 billion investment to better protect hundreds of thousands of properties across England.
