Flood plans in…1

PLANS have been submitted by the Environment Agency for flood defences to protect a North Yorkshire town.
The proposed £2m scheme for Northallerton will reduce the risk of flooding to 292 homes and businesses and construction work will start this autumn, subject to planning approval from Hambleton District Council.
The agency has amended part of its original plans to protect an additional 80 properties from flooding from two becks and urgent repairs to culverts in the town centre have been going on for several weeks ahead of the main scheme.
