Valley slopes

For several years we have tried to get CMBC to fix the loose water running down the bridal way onto the track and under railway tunnel arriving to form a pond on track in front of 'new' flood lake by new bridge. The council will do nothing about it, but some one had run pipes underground across to our land without agreement, council deny knowledge but no one else would be interested enough.
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.
