Yate and Chipping Sodbury Scheme

The Environment Agency is working on a plan that will reduce flood risk to homes and properties in Yate and Chipping Sodbury.

So far, the EA has carried out a preliminary study that identifies 3 options:

  • flood storage;
  • river channel widening;
  • property level flood-resilience.

The indicative costs of the individual options are £3.7 million, £300,000 and £100,000, respectively.

As well as exploring each option separately, a combination of all 3 options is also under consideration. The combined option would provide the highest standard of protection but would increase the cost of the scheme to approximately £4 million.

Following a detailed inspection of the river, discussions with residents and appraisal of options, the Environment Agency arrived at a preferred option, combination of a flood storage area and property level measures.

According to the Environment Agency, this combination of options provides the highest standard of protection, at a total cost of around £4 million.
