Summary of the Calderdale Natural Flood Management Study

21st March 2024 News

The Environment Agency commissioned a study in 2021 to ask some key questions about
what could be achieved if natural flood management was scaled up across Calderdale.

The questions asked were influenced by and discussed with partners in the Calderdale NFM Operations Group and included:

  • What is the target for flood risk reduction in Calderdale, assuming the completion of
    the current capital schemes?
  •  What scale of NFM is required to meet this, to provide additional resilience on top of
    the existing and planned defences, and what form might these measures take?
  • What is the timescale for constructing these NFM interventions?
  •  How much will it cost to provide these NFM interventions?
