Proposals to reduce the flood risk in the Calder Valley will be discussed at a council meeting later today, over two years since devastating floods hit the area.
Calderdale Council's Cabinet will examine two flood schemes, one of which could see the relocation of Caldene Bridge in Mytholmroyd.
This would see the bridge move 25m upstream to allow for the widening of the river.
Up to £1.6m of funding from the European Structural and Investment Fund could support the project.
The other proposal could see the creation of new wet woodlands, grasslands and aquatic habitats.
The Council's cabinet member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Barry Collins, feels the scheme will boost local business.
“These two schemes would be a real benefit to the Upper Calder Valley, both minimising the flood risk and adding value to the environment.
