We have had a lot of problems getting paid the £5000 so called grant, we have spent at least £500 in time dealing with CMBC to get paid. They seem to have a big issue over the fact that we provided our own labour to carry out resilience work and this despite the fact that we only charged out at cost to us. I almost wish I had charged out at full rates then we could have covered this level of administration.
This uploaded video was taken on Boxing Day and shows the flooding on fields on which Calderdale Council are potentially proposing to make available for the building of 190 houses in their soon to be finalised Local Plan. This specific area is LP0821. The area is 1 mile East of Todmorden towards Hebden Bridge, and extends between Oldroyd and the canal, with Woodhouse Road to the East of the area.
I have been asked to describe how the flooding affected Savile Road. I live about half way up the hill so not at risk from the river but water pouring down the hills and through the woods here filled the yard behind a house a few doors from me and may well have entered the house if neighbours hadn't managed to divert the flow. I was away until the 27th but am told a river was running ankle deep down Savile Road on Boxing Day.
