Since the Boxing Day floods in 2015, the Environment Agency has been working to repair existing assets and investigate new flood alleviation schemes. We have developed a programme of work to further reduce the risk to properties and businesses throughout the Valley. Working in partnership with Calderdale Council and our Delivery Partners, we are developing a number of projects that are at various stages in the project lifecycle. To help illustrate the progress of the programme, we have produced a presentation. Click here to view the presentation.
The presentation provides useful background information about each of the projects within the current programme, along with the stage of development and the project team responsible. It also provides an explanation as to the different stages that a scheme will go through internally in order to progress, where feasible, to construction, i.e. SOC (Strategic Outline Case), OBC (Outline Business Case) and FBC (Full Business Case).
