Flooding in Charlestown

Posted by Chaman, Monday, April 8, 2002

Could someone please let me have any information about flood risk in the Woodland View, Charlestown, Hebden Bridge area. We have been in the Calder Valley for about a year now and are hoping to make our home in the Charlestown area. Many thanks, Chaman

The Environment Agency is doing a lot of work to try and improve flood relief all along the valley. This will include substantial work in Charlestown which is just starting. However you may not be able to get insurance, as a result of two floods within 12 months last year. Contact me if you want to talk about it, or talk to people on the terrace

Did you get any response to your query? We are thinking of moving in to Hebden Bridge and have exactly the same concerns. Would appreciate any information you can give me. Thanks in advance
