York Flood Alleviation Scheme on Display

The Environment Agency has released further details for three sections of its £45m York Flood Alleviation Scheme and is holding a public drop-in to give information and get feedback on proposals.

As well as the work the Environment Agency is doing on the Clementhorpe, New Walk and North Street sections of the £45m York Flood Alleviation Scheme, and the River Foss catchment, the Agency is developing plans for the sections that run from York Ring Road at Rawcliffe to Lendal Bridge.

This stretch is split into three sections: the ring road to Clifton Bridge; then to Scarborough Bridge; and then to Lendal Bridge.

Environment Agency project manager for the work, Richard Lever, said: “The middle section of the three, Clifton Bridge to Scarborough Bridge, will be the area we will progress flood defence works first.”

“We are holding a drop-in so the public can view plans and give feedback on the proposals that will better protect 150 properties, the majority of which are on Almery Terrace, Sycamore Terrace, Longfield Terrace and Bootham Terrace.

“We are currently involved in discussions with key partners, including Natural England, Sustrans and Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows, in how we can minimize the impact on the habitat, cause the least inconvenience while work is being undertaken and maintain amenities when work is complete.

“Dependent on these discussions, we are aiming to submit the planning permission for this section before the end of the year.”

The drop in will take place today at the Environment Agency’s community hub on Wellington Row from 12-7pm.
