Two council-led projects have been given money in a new wave of funding to combat floods and regenerate historic city centres.

Cambridgeshire CC and Norwich City Council will share an£800,000 pot from the government and the European Regional Development Fund with four other schemes.

Cambridgeshire was given£150,000 to help fund Flows, a programme which aims to improve the sustainability of development in areas at risk from flooding.

Liveable City, a city centre management initiative led by Norwich City Council, was also handed a£150,000 grant.

Of the remaining four projects, three were led by the Environment Agency. The fourth - Saul - was set up by Groundwork UK in a bid to improve the use of open spaces in cities and got£168,000.

Regeneration minister Tony McNulty said: 'This will have a real impact on people's lives. Planning needs to get a lot smarter to meet the highly complex challenges faced by communities today.'
