Otley Flood Alleviation Scheme on Display

Otley residents and businesses are being invited to come along to hear about the latest on flood risk reduction plans at a drop-in event on Thursday 1 March.

According to the Environment Agency, visitors to the drop in will have an opportunity to see how feedback from the last event in October has helped to shape options for flood alleviation scheme for Otley.

Representatives from Leeds City Council, Environment Agency, Yorkshire Water and WSP (the consultants undertaking survey and investigation work) will be at the event to answer any questions and discuss the latest progress.

Leader of Leeds City Council Councillor Judith Blake said: “Together with our partners we are continuing to make good progress on our plans for flood prevention measures in Otley. The modelling work on the river is finished and we are now testing the possible options.

John Woods, flood risk management adviser at the Environment Agency said: “We’re grateful to everyone who came along to the last event in October to give us your views and ideas. We have looked at these in detail and have tested a number of them in the digital model to assess their impact on flooding. Residents views are once again really important in helping us to shape the preferred option for Otley.”

The drop in will be held at the Core Otley, Unit 11 Orchard Gate, on Thursday 1 March between 4–7pm.

The Otley Flood Alleviation Scheme is one of several schemes that is adopting a catchment-wide approach. This means the entire River Wharfe catchment area will be considered to help reduce flood risk.
