Mytholmroyd Flood Scheme Progresses

Planning applications for the main elements of the Mytholmroyd Flood Scheme have now been submitted, according to the Calderdale Council latest update.

The residents can view plans of the Flood Alleviation Scheme and talk to the Environment Agency at its surgeries being held in the Community Centre from 12pm to 3pm on Tuesday and from 9am to 12pm Friday, reported the Council.

According to the Council, traffic management will now be in place along Burnley Road in phases to complete the various parts of the flood defense scheme including construction of new flood walls, the relocation of Caldene Bridge, widening the river channel at key locations, and strengthening and waterproofing buildings next to the river.

The £30 million flood scheme for Mytholmroyd has been developed by the Environment Agency in partnership with Calderdale Council, the local community, and partners.
