The Lincolnshire Lakes is a strategic regeneration project on the western fringe of the Scunthorpe urban area. The project seeks to bring forward 6,000+ homes, a commercial park, education/community/health facilities, green infrastructure and recreational and functional lakes. One of the key strategic objectives is to bring forward a flood management solution which ensures a safe development, free from flooding. It is also essential that this solution will provide additionality to the existing flood defences and improve the situation for the villages of Buringham and Gunness.

 

The Lincolnshire Lakes Flood Risk and Drainage Strategy aims to allow for the development of sustainable areas that are flood resilient and adaptable for the future with exemplar flood risk defence and drainage infrastructure, to enable the achievement of major social and environmental benefits, including overall reduction of flood risk to nearby communities.
