York’s 5-year flood defence plan on show

The Environment Agency is inviting members of the public, businesses, and organisations in York to come and see their plans to reduce the risk of flooding for York over the next 5 years via a ‘drop-in’ session.

You will also have chance to get the latest updates on their work at the Foss Barrier and to help better prepare yourself for the risk of flooding.

These plans come on the back of the £45m that has been made available by the government to the city following the Boxing Day floods in 2015.

The public ‘drop-in’ event is free, open to all, and will be held at Hotel 53, Piccadilly, on Friday 25 November, 12 – 7pm and Saturday 26 November, 10am – 5pm.

The Environment Agency will also be tweeting about it @EnvAgencyYNE.
