Leader of Leeds City Council, Councillor Judith Blake, is set to open a public flood information centre in the Kirkstall area of Leeds to provide flood information and advice to those at risk of flooding.
The Team Kirkstall Regeneration Hub, collaboratively set up by Phil Marken of Open Source Arts Ltd and Kirkstall Regen Ltd, the Environment Agency, Leeds City Council and BAM Nuttall, will act as a focal point for residents and businesses in Kirkstall, providing easy access to information on the flood scheme and flood resilience advice.
It will also provide an opportunity for them to share their local knowledge and aspirations for the area to help shape the future of the scheme.
Blake said: “The local community was very badly hit by the floods last Christmas, so their views and recollections will be essential to help us ensure future protection is put in place. I would again like to pay tribute to all of those affected for their patience and understanding as well as the amazing 'Team Kirkstall' and volunteers from across the city who gave up their time for free to help with the clean-up.”
It is no mystery that there is a huge task at hand to solve the growing problems of waste, inefficient resources, and the disposal of hazardous materials as our communities develop.
