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.
