New £21million flood prevention plans for Anlaby and East Ella will go on public display today (Wednesday, November 30).

If approval is granted it is hoped that hundreds of homes could be saved from future flood damage.

Funding has already been secured from the Environment Agency and the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, with a grant from the Local Growth Fund.

Work is provisionally scheduled to begin between 2017 and 2020.

The proposals will go on display between 1.30pm and 5.30pm at East Riding Leisure Haltemprice complex, with residents invited to view the plans, meet officers, and ask questions.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, East Riding of Yorkshire Council leader, hopes residents will come along and provide their opinions.

He said: “The 2007 floods affected so many people in the East Riding. These alleviation schemes are incredibly important to help protect these areas from the threat of further flooding.

“I hope local residents and business people will go along to this exhibition to see the plans and speak directly to our officers, and we would welcome their feedback. The exhibition day at the leisure centre is open to everyone.”
