The Mytholmroyd Action Plan was commissioned by the Secretary of State for the Department of Environment, Flood and Rural Affairs following the flooding experienced throughout the Calder Valley on Boxing Day 2015.
Over £10 million has been allocated from the wider Calderdale programme to reduce flood risk in Mytholmroyd. This plan includes proposals to:
construct new and raise existing walls on both banks of the River Calder and Cragg Brook to up to maximum height of approximately 1.8m
strengthen buildings on both banks of the River Calder and Cragg Brook
make improvements to the culvert on White Lee Clough
widen the channel on the River Calder including improvements to bridge structures
