The Prime Minister is being urged to back a £100 million package to protect the Somerset Levels from more devastating floods.
Bridgwater and West Somerset MP Ian Liddell-Grainger, who will deliver the 20-year plan to Downing Street later, said he was confident the Government would support the measures.
"The Prime Minister made it very clear that money would be no object on this," he sad.
"If we are going to secure the Levels for the future we are going to have to do this.
"We are one of the biggest economies in the world. We can afford it.
"The Prime Minister is fully aware of the cost of putting the Levels back and securing it."
An action plan from residents calls for a new tidal barrier at Bridgwater, raising the level of key roads and extensive dredging of rivers.
