BUTLEY WALL REFURBISHMENT
This work was instigated by the East Suffolk IDB and was funded by the landowners. It involved the improvement to the structure of the defence and raising the defence to make it resilient to a 1 in 200yr event. This work was carried out in 2011 and the Environment Agency was fully consulted throughout the whole project. This is an example of work being fully carried out and managed by the local IDB and funded privately due to it being in area deemed unsuitable for funding from the EA.
COST: £45,406.48 Landowner Funded which has been apportioned to the beneficiaries according to Drainage Rateable Values as follows:
Boyton Hall Farms : £12,516.48 (28%)
, Capel St Andrews Farms : £18,320.54 (40%),
Greenwell Farms : £14,569.46 (32%),
As the fourth landowner in the flood cell, RSPB would have paid £8,395.06 (18%) had they supported the project, which would have reduced costs proportionately. All costs are subject to Vat at 20%.
