The Environment Agency is delivering a proposed Flood Risk Management Scheme to better protect homes and business from flooding in the Kent catchment, and improve the local environment and community amenities. Kendal is the first area to be delivered, followed by Burneside, Staveley, and Ings, and upstream measures including flood storage. In addition, Natural Flood Management measures are being integrated into the plans which aim to slow the flow of water and provide wider environmental benefits across the catchment.

There are a number of other projects being delivered by other organisations that will provide some flood risk benefits. These projects can be varied in their nature and include environmental enhancement projects, improvements to infrastructure, conveyance and drainage.

Using visualisations, the Environment Agency can indicate how the completed scheme will integrate into the local townscape. They are working closely with other organisations to ensure the scheme ties into other projects around Kendal.
