Calderdale Council: Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme on Display

Progress with work to protect local people and businesses from flooding will be discussed by Calderdale Council’s Flooding Scrutiny Panel set for today. 

Commenting the latest news, Cllr Geraldine Carter, Chair of the Panel, said: “Protecting Calderdale communities from the terrible impacts of flooding is such a vital part of what the Council and partner organizations do, so we encourage people to come along to hear the latest updates.”

Topics up for discussion include the Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation Scheme, which was developed in partnership with Calderdale Council, the local community and partner organisations like the Environment Agency to help provide better protection for local people and businesses.

Work on the Scheme is in full swing and it’s due for completion in winter 2019/20. The Panel will discuss the work that has already been carried out, the next steps and the traffic management which is needed throughout the delivery of the Scheme, looking to take forward the lessons learned to make it as effective as possible.

The Flooding Scrutiny Panel will also discuss progress on the work carried out by the Calderdale Flood Recovery and Resilience Partnership, and in its oversight and delivery of the Calderdale Flood Recovery and Resilience Program.

The meeting will take place today, from 6pm, at Mytholmroyd Community and Leisure Centre, Caldene Avenue, Mytholmroyd.
