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.
