Funding is a major consideration for the Lower Otter Restoration Project, which would not have been able to reach this stage without having secured substantial external support.

The overall cost of the project is likely to be around £12 million.

Around £8.5 million of the funding is being provided by the EU's Interreg France (Channel) England Programme as part of Project PACCo - Promoting Adaptation to Changing Coasts - which is also supporting work in Normandy in France to increase connectivity between the River Saane and its floodplain.

The France (Channel) England Programme is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The PACCo model, which features new solutions for more natural and effective management of heavily modified estuaries, could be replicated at 70 other sites in the France (Channel) England (FCE) area.

Other funding for the Lower Otter Restoration Project is coming from the Environment Agency and Clinton Devon Estates.

Prospective funders of the element of the project involving a new home for Budleigh Salterton Cricket Club include sporting bodies and the Landfill Communities Fund.
