Upland Management

Question: 
Is it true that those owning/responsible for managing the uplands/moorlands around the Calder Valley have been/are managing these areas in such a way as to exacerbate water run off into the streams/valleys and, hence, contributing to the flooding of homes and businesses in the valley bottom towns. Furthermore, is it true that these owners have been receiving/do receive large subsidies of public money to do this. If the answer to either of these questions is yes, what is going be done about it?
