Boost for natural flood management in Calderdale

New projects using nature to help reduce flood risk in Calderdale will soon get off the ground, thanks to a £112,000 funding boost from Calderdale Council and the Environment Agency.

Flooding is a significant ongoing risk in Calderdale due to its large areas of moorland, steep-sided valleys and the effects of climate change. With three major floods in just eight years, the impacts have been devastating.New-attenuation-pond-above-Todmorden-e1591612020567

The Council, the Environment Agency, other partner organisations and the community continue to do everything they can to minimise the risk and build resilience. Since the floods in 2012, they have been working together on the long-term Calderdale Flood Action Plan.
