Congratulations to our Winner
Winner | Low Crosby Flood Risk Management Scheme, Environment Agency
Through exemplary collaboration and engagement, Low Crosby Flood Risk Management Scheme implements an entirely nature-based, carbon sequestration solution to reduce flood risk to 95 properties, deliver £15M of benefit and provide long-term climate resilience.
To better plan and adapt to increasing flood risk, this project takes a radically different approach. Instead of building ever higher defences, the entirely nature-based solution involved lowering a 3km private embankment on the opposite bank of the river to reconnect 185ha of historic floodplain. This maximises the natural conveyance capacity and significantly reduces flood levels at Low Crosby.
