Mytholmroyd Flood Plans on the Table

A guided walking tour of Mytholmroyd to share plans for the new £30 million flood alleviation scheme proposed for the village has been hosted for ward councilors, reports the Environment Agency.

They were invited to meet the Environment Agency’s project team on Friday, August 18th to share their plans for the project on site and ask any questions.

The Calderdale Flood Partnership Board recently approved the allocation of funding of the major flood scheme to improve the protection for homes and businesses in Mytholmroyd.

The EA will be submitting a series of submissions for planning permission this week, with further submissions planned for September and construction is expected to begin in the autumn.

The scheme for Mytholmroyd has been developed in partnership with Calderdale Council, the local community, and partners. As design work is finalized, the current options for the scheme, among others, include: new, raised flood and improved walls and widening of the river channel at key locations.

According to the Environment Agency, plans for the scheme are to be completed in phases and widening the river at Greenhill Industrial Estate will continue to be explored.
