EA Announces Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme

The Environment Agency has announced action plan for Mytholmroyd, which will spend more than £10 million on flood defenses to reduce flood risk.

The Mytholmroyd Action Plan sets out the proposed actions that will reduce flood risk in Mytholmroyd. The proposals involve local engineered interventions in conjunction with catchment wide measures such as upstream storage and natural flood risk management, which will be investigated further through the Calderdale Catchment Plan.

The outline plan includes proposals to:

  • construct new and raise existing walls on both banks of the River Calder and Cragg Brook to up to maximum height of approximately 1.8m;
  • strengthen buildings on both banks of the River Calder and Cragg Brook;
  • make improvements to the culvert on White Lee Clough;
  • widen the channel on the River Calder including improvements to bridge structures.

The main works will start by the end of 2016. This is constrained by a challenging design program
and the statutory consultation period for planning of up to 16 weeks.
