2Develop and deliver a flood alleviation scheme for Hebden Bridge.Environment AgencyEnd of 2020Simon Byrne - NCPMSPresent2020n/a - site works not yet startedGreenWe have had to postpone the original public consultation on 3rd May due to the ongoing purdah period as a result of the upcoming general election. This is being rescheduled for June/July - dates to be confirmed.• Work with the local flood groups to improve understanding of flooding with the community and support the resilience work already underway.
• Work with colleagues in the Environment Agency and stakeholders to achieve the WFD objectives set within the catchment.
• Working with Yorkshire Water on a storm water management strategy currently in development.
• Working with the local Hebden Bridge Partnership to achieve some of the objectives of their 2020 Vision master plan.
We are currently working on a number of options for the scheme which will be shared with the public for feedback/consultation in June/July.

Environment AgencyOngoing to end of 2021Ed Sorfleet - NCPMSPresent2021GreenDelay in public consultation due to pre-election period. Likely to be held in the final week of June 2017. Still awaiting latest River Calder modelling from consultants.All site visits have taken place with CMBC and consultants. Currently receiving draft Intital Assessments from consultants to review. Initial Assessments are due for completion in July 2017. Jumble Dyke and Rosemount, Elland have been removed from the package due to not having any information to undertake an IA for Jumble Dyke and Rosemount being the same project as Park Road, Elland which is ongoing within the FRRS1 package. Potential sites for FRSS2 now revised to 18 potential sites which will be detailed in revived plan.

Likely to be 18-24 months to complete this.Work with partners to develop a holistic solution, e.g. YWS, CRT, CMBC.Initial Assessment has been completed which has identified the next steps as detailed hydraulic modelling and appraisal work to fully understand the risk and develop options to reduce that risk. Next step is to understand the data gaps and write a modelling and appraisal scope to be delivered in 2017/18.

7Implement the Calderdale flood investment plan to secure match funding.Calderdale Metropolitan Borough CouncilEnd of 2018Virginia Saynor/ Neil FearnleyDec-1848% (£50m out of £105m spent)GreenTotal of £105m has been awarded from various sources since the Boxing Day 2015 floods to form the Calderdale flood investment plan. This funding has been used to secure match funding as opportunities arise. Challenges and issues are: identifying opportunities; resourcing and co-ordinating bids for match funding; cost of administration and management of projects when successful.Flood Investment funding used to secure match funding for: Mytholmroyd FAS from LCR LEP Growth Fund 3 (£2.5m); Flood Arts commissions (£50k from Community Foundation and £150k from Arts Council). ERDF funding application being submitted on 04-07-17 for £1.6m for Caldene Bridge work within Mytholmroyd FAS. Further opportunities for LCR LEP Growth Deal 3 funding for NFM (share of £1.7m) and support for Brighouse and Clifton FAS (£4m). Flood Investment Fund also used to secure FDGiA from DEFRA.Complete FRRS 1 schemes. Develop major Flood Alleviation Schemes and FRRS 2 projects within the investment plan. Continue to seek match funding opportunities as they arise.

The programme, which will be based on evidence and regularly updated, will identify and prioritise schemes based on risk and vulnerability, smaller flood risk reduction schemes and capital maintenance.Environment AgencyMay 2017/Annual ReviewHelen BattongoingAmberResources available to achieve the next step. EA have offered to review initial drafts on the PAFS systemCMBC to submit revised project proposals and new projects which they have identified through their prioritisation process (action from meeting held with EA on 24/05/17).

• introducing syphon points as standard on replacement schemes;
• adding new water extraction equipment;
• investing more in managing pressure remotely to monitor changes in pressure and adjust them to avoid loss of supply; investing in overcrossing, aiming in the long term to put vulnerable crossings underground.

Slow The Flow: Calderdale will propose a new follow up action.Lead Organisation should read 'Slow The Flow: Calderdale (SOURCE Partnership)'. Action No. 47 is a project led by Amanda McDermott, committee member of the group Slow the Flow: Calderdale, who have co-ordinated the project as part of the SOURCE partnership. The project is hosted on the website www.slowtheflow.net. The project name has changed, and 'Save Some Space For A Rainy Day' should now read 'You Can Slow The Flow'. Slow The Flow: Calderdale suggests that Action No. 47 would be more suited under the category Natural Flood Management.
