Wykebeck Flood Alleviation

Our £2.6 million Leeds City Region Growth Deal investment into the Wyke Beck Valley flood alleviation scheme will part-fund works in Killingbeck Meadows, Arthur’s Rein and Halton Moor, in East Leeds.

Our investment, part of a total £4.2 million project, will fund the creation of new embankments and flood storage areas to help reduce the risk of flooding to 60 homes in the Dunhill Estate and make possible the development of 200 homes by 2025 on brownfield sites in East Leeds. 

The project is being led by Leeds City Council.
