East Riding to Hold Exhibition on Flood Defense Projects

A two-day exhibition will be held next week to show residents the progress of multi-million-pound flood schemes under construction in the East Riding.

Members of the public are invited to go along to the drop-in event which will be held at East Riding Leisure Haltemprice, Springfield Way, Anlaby, on Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 February, from 11am to 4pm each day, reported the East Riding Council.

The projects on display will include the Cottingham and Orchard Park Flood Alleviation Scheme (COPFAS) and the Anlaby and East Ella Flood Alleviation Scheme (AEEFAS), which are currently being built at a cost of £22 million each.

The schemes are some of the largest currently under construction in the country.

When completed they will reduce the risk of flooding to more than 8,000 homes and businesses in the Cottingham, Anlaby, East Ella and Hessle areas.

The exhibition will include photographs, videos and plans and members of the project teams will be on hand to speak to members of the public.

The event will also include information about the 2007 floods which devastated areas of the East Riding and Hull, and resulted in the launch of the alleviation work.

Also included will be details of the first major project to be completed, the £14 million Willerby and Derringham Flood Alleviation Scheme.
