About The Partners

The Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area (ASEA) Ecology Mitigation and Flood Defence Project is delivering a new flood defence scheme for Avonmouth Severnside, along a 17 kilometre stretch of coastline to protect local communities and reduce flood risk to at least 2,500 homes and businesses, now and in the future.

The project also includes creating new habitats for important wildlife specific in the area and to help enhance and grow the Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area to reach its economic potential.

The project is a joint partnership with South Gloucestershire Council as the lead partner, Bristol City Council as a partner and the Environment Agency as a partner and delivery partner.

The majority of the funding is from the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership Economic Development Fund, administered by the West of England Combined Authority. Other sources of funding are the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and from the Wessex Regional Flood and Coastal Committee.
