The Environment Agency is inviting residents to find out about their 5 year plans* to reduce the risk of flooding in 10 separate areas of York, including Naburn.
Potential plans include modifying Naburn Weir so it could be lowered at certain times to allow more water in the Ouse to leave York more quickly, if this is seen to reduce river levels. Other possible work includes increasing the height of land at Moor Lane by up to 1.2 metres, building a new defence along the river bank adjacent to Front Street and Maypole Grove, installing a new pumping station in a low spot on the B1222 road, creating a flood storage area and building a new embankment in a field west of the railway line on Howden Dyke.
The exhibition is open on Friday 25 November 12pm - 7pm and Saturday 26 November 10am - 5pm at:
