Mytholmroyd Flood Alleviation

We’ve invested £2.5 million of Leeds City Region Growth Deal funding into flood alleviation works in Mytholmroyd.

Our investment, part of a £30 million project, will help fund the construction of new flood walls for the River Calder and Cragg Brook; the widening of the river channel; the construction of a new bridge; and removal of the bridge at Orchard Business Park.

This is part of our £20 million programme to reduce the risk of flooding for homes and businesses across Leeds City Region. Alongside £57 million of partner funding, this programme is expected to safeguard up to 1,385 businesses and 11,100 jobs.
