Hebden Bridge Flood Alleviation Scheme

Stubbing Holme Road Proposals consultation

One of the proposed elements of the Hebden Bridge Flood Alleviation Scheme is to address flooding to properties along Stubbing Holme Road by raising the existing wall heights. These works are proposed for the first phase of the Hebden Bridge Flood Alleviation Scheme.  

We have identified two possible wall heights along Stubbing Holme Road which offer different standards of protection. We are currently reviewing which of the two options offers the optimum scheme benefits. As part of the decision making process we are keen to take into consideration the views of the residents that live along Stubbing Holme Road, with regard to the visual impact of the proposals. On Tuesday 7th August we installed boards at sections along the wall at Stubbing Holme Road to provide an example of the wall height options. On 8th August we held a public consultation at Hebden Royd Methodist Church to share the proposals for the Stubbing Holme Road area. At the consultation we presented the designs and asked residents living along Stubbing Holme Road to cast their opinion on which wall height they prefer.  

The consultation posters can be viewed below. Each property at Stubbing Holme Road has been provided with an opinion slip. Following review of the proposals and example wall boards we ask that residents return the slip to us in order to give their opinion. The closing date for this will be Friday 17th August.

If you have any questions or feedback please contact the project team by emailing us at  HebdenBridgeFAS@environment-agency.gov.uk.

We are in the process of developing the outline design for the rest of the Hebden Bridge Flood Alleviation Scheme and will continue to work with stakeholders and wider community groups.    As we begin to finalise the outline design, we will hold another consultation event to share our proposals.
