Farmers, landowners and businesses in Lincolnshire should be given tax relief by the Government if they are willing to invest in vital local flood defence projects.

The CLA has called Chancellor George Osborn’s intention to introduce tax relief for businesses that part-fund Government-led flood defence projects “far too restrictive” and asked Ministers to re-think current proposals.
