One year on – revisiting flood hit communities

Calderdale Council’s Economy and Environment Scrutiny Panel will visit Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden on Thursday 27 June to see the progress which has been made in recovering from the devastating floods of 2012.

Chair of the Economy and Environment Scrutiny Panel, Cllr Scott Benton, said:

“This Scrutiny meeting gives those affected a further opportunity to understand what happened during the floods of last summer and to provide us with valuable information to help the Council and partner organisations continue to plan for the future.

“I look forward to hearing from volunteer flood wardens from the new Flood Group set up in Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd and Todmorden in the aftermath of the floods, and the views of the Council and its partners, including the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water.

Cllr Benton added:

“The Scrutiny Panel is open to the public and we are very keen to hear from local residents, particularly those directly affected by the flooding last year, and representatives of the local Parish/Town Councils and Borough Council Wards.”

The meeting is at 5pm on Thursday 27 June, 2013 at Todmorden Town Hall.
