Hebden Bridge Flood Alleviation Scheme

Scheme overview


Provisional Stubbing Holme Road proposals

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. The below designs and posters were presented at an initial public consultation in 2018. Feedback from this event has been taken into account for the outline design of the Stubbing Holme Road element of the project.

In order to deliver this element of the works we must first ensure that adequate funding is in place to deliver all proposed works across Hebden Bridge. The recently announced funding to deliver a scheme in Hebden Bridge included the proposals for works to the town centre, Stubbing Holme Road and Erringden Hillside.

The overall scheme is complex and the team are now progressing the initial plans to produce detailed designs and ensure operational, legal, technical and financial feasibility. As all the elements of the scheme are developed, and the risks are better understood, the scope and cost may change from the current estimates. Further funding may be required to deliver all elements of the schemes. However, the partnership will continue to progress funding applications and manage costs to deliver the best possible protection for the community in Hebden Bridge.

Hebden Bridge consultation feedback report

Following the consultation held on the 27th June 2017 regarding the proposals for the Hebden Bridge Flood Alleviation Scheme, we have collated all the feedback received and prepared the attached report - please click here to view.

The report will inform the issues we need to consider as we develop the proposals for the scheme and compiles all the comments we’ve received so far – you've told us what you like and don’t like about the proposals and what’s important to you.

We are now in the process of developing the outline design for the scheme and will continue to work with affected parties and wider community groups.    As we begin to finalise the outline design, we will hold another consultation event and demonstrate how the issues raised through the design process have been addressed.
