Drop-in Session in Flood-Prone North Yorkshire

Work to improve flood defenses in parts of Skipton town center in North Yorkshire are set to start in September and local residents and business owners are being invited to a drop-in meeting to see how it will affect them.

Four sites in the town center have been targeted for improvements as part of the Environment Agency’s £13 million Skipton Flood Alleviation Scheme.

These are at Devonshire Place, where a new wall is needed on one side of Waller Hill Beck behind residential and business properties; at nearby Ginnel Mews, where an existing wall needs replacing; construction of new walls on either side of Eller Beck next to Morrison’s supermarket and minor improvement works near Spindle Mill.

The drop-in meeting will be held at the Friends Meeting House, The Ginnel, Newmarket Street between 3pm and 7pm on Tuesday, 11 August, 2015.

Members of the Environment Agency project team and representatives from its contractors, who will be undertaking the works, will be in attendance to answer any questions and to address any local concerns.
