PUBLIC CONSULTATION on proposals to manage flood risk from the River Hull and other main watercourses in the area is taking place. Views are also being sought on the draft Catchment Flood Management Plan (CFMP) for the River Hull and Coastal Streams.
The Environment Agency’s draft River Hull Flood Risk Management Strategy outlines how investment of £109 million is needed over the next 20 years to manage flood risk to some 100,000 homes and businesses in East Yorkshire.
The draft Strategy looks at current and future flood risk for the River Hull and streams which feed into it and takes account of climate change.
Information on the draft River Hull Flood Risk Management Strategy can be found on the Environment Agency’s website at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/riverhullstrategy.
Information on the draft CFMPs can be found on the Environment Agency’s website at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/cfmp then follow the link to Yorkshire & North East.
There will be a number of public events during the consultation process, which runs for 12 weeks from 21 May until 13 August.
Dates and venues will be announced shortly for combined events for the draft River Hull Strategy and the CFMP.
Two further drop-in events will take place outside the River Hull Strategy geographical area, and will focus on the CFMP, at:
- Ottringham Village Institute, Station Road, Ottringham, on Thursday, 27 May;
- Shiptonthorpe Village Hall, Shiptonthorpe, on Thursday, 3 June.
Both events take place between 2pm and 7pm.
