We are keen to engage with woodland owners in the uplands above the Calder Valley and the cloughs closer to the valley floor.
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 in woodland could be the construction of leaky woody debris dams similar to those constructed at Hardcastle Crags. As an incentive there are possible ongoing annual payments for woodland owners who can prove they have maintained the Natural Flood Management interventions installed on their land.
Contact us here for more information.
Alternatively, if you have land that you would be happy to use for Natural Flood Management to slow the flow please use the form below.
