Public Exhibitions For Joint Council Flood Alleviation Schemes

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council are working in partnership on two large flood alleviation schemes, which would reduce the impact on residential and business premises in the Haltemprice and west Hull areas from floods like that experienced in 2007.

Engineers are concluding work on an urban catchment model assessing various flood risk options to tackle flooding in Hull and the East Riding.

Feasibility works on the Willerby and Derringham Flood Alleviation Scheme (WaDFAS) and the Cottingham Orchard Park Flood Alleviation Scheme (COPFAS) are drawing to a close and the results exhibited at three locations so that the public can view the workable options, comment on the options for the schemes and offer ideas to shape the solutions that are currently on the table.

The public exhibitions will be held at the Orchard Park Centre on Tuesday, 19 June from 2pm to 5.15pm, Haltemprice Leisure Centre on Wednesday, 20 June, from 9am-5.15pm, and at the Cottingham Civic Hall on Friday, 29 June, from 10am- 7.45pm.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "Both councils take flood prevention very seriously and these two schemes would go a long way in reducing the risk of flooding for thousands of properties against the kind of severe rainfall we saw in the summer of 2007.

"The urban catchment model devised by our engineers is one of the most complex drainage models attempted in the UK and possibly even in Europe.

"These events will be part of the consultation process and we would encourage residents of both Hull and East Riding to provide constructive feedback and discuss the schemes as a whole."

A spokesperson for Hull City Council confirmed that they are fully supportive of the proposals and will be in attendance to support East Riding of Yorkshire Council officers at the exhibitions.
