You can volunteer your farmland

We are keen to engage with landowners or tenant farmers in the uplands above the Calder Valley, there is funding coming available for Natural Flood Management and Slow the Flow Calderdale are part of the process of locating and scoping possible suitable sites, so please get in touch with us if you fall into this category.  Natural Flood Management on farmland could be the construction of shallow attenuation ponds which empty once the storm has passed and swales which temporarily intercept run off and store water, please see our Case Study  1 for an example of an attenuation pond constructed on farmland above Todmorden.   As an incentive there are possible ongoing annual payments for landowners who can prove they have maintained the Natural Flood Management interventions installed on their land
