I responded to a written PQ from the hon. Member for Vale of Clwyd (Chris Ruane) on 20 May 2013 asking which coastal towns have benefited from flood defences under the coastal change pathfinders scheme, and how much has been spent on coastal defences in each such community since the termination of that scheme.
My response included a table detailing spend by authority. This table has now been updated by clarifying the figure given for Waveney district council.

The total expenditure in Waveney was £10,000. I originally gave a figure of £101, which was the Environment Agency contribution to the project. The remainder of the funding came from their project partners. Our partnership funding approach clarifies what level of investment communities can expect so that they can secure funding from other sources to allow schemes to go ahead.
The funding was used as part of the Southwold Easton Bavents relocation project.
