Calder Greening is a series of projects to improve green spaces, encourage tourism and business growth, and complement Flood Alleviation schemes with naturally managed flood risk across the Calder Valley.

Part funded by the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) as part of a £1.3m package, it is being delivered by Calderdale Council in partnership with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and the Environment Agency.

The proposed schemes will help provide an increasingly attractive natural environment, deliver new and enhanced wildlife habitats and improve biodiversity to an area of the Calder Valley totalling around 156 hectares. The project also includes plans to use natural features to slow the rate of water runoff and increase the volume of water that the landscape can hold, reducing flood risk.
