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.

The following line in the article linked to made me think it worth bringing to people's attention: “The landscape mops up the water – it’s a blotting paper effect and assures nothing like the Somerset Levels disaster happens”. I feel there are various points in the article worth serious consideration, e.g. farming systems, landscape-scale effects and properly functioning communities.
