York flood prevention update due to be discussed next week

Another update on the work being undertaken to prevent flooding in the York area is being considered on 3rd December.

The report has been produced by the Environment Agency.

Details are also provided on the alleviation plans for the Clementhorpe part of the City.

Regular updates have been provided since the flooding in late December 2015 which followed an intense period of rainfall across November and December due to the impacts of Storms Desmond and Eva.

Record river levels were observed in many river catchments across the north of England. More  than 4000 homes and 2000 businesses flooded across Yorkshire with 453 properties and 174 businesses flooded in York.

Funding has been allocated to the Environment Agency (EA) following the floods to renew existing and provide new flood defences across the city, £17m has been allocated to the Foss Barrier improvements and £45m to the wider flood defences across the city
