16. What is Local Levy Funding?
Another form of funding is via the local levy. Although it sounds like a levy being put on properties local to the scheme, the money actually comes from a fund that’s shared across the South West. This local levy fund is administered by the Regional Flood and Coastal Committee, who choose where best to spend the money in the South West. The Sidmouth and East Cliff Beach Management Scheme has made a good case from funding from this route and we await to hear the final value.
