This project is to reduce the risk of pollution to Head Hope Dene. A range of solutions are being investigated to reduce the risk of pollution caused by flooding from the sewer due to blockages, and land slip. Construction is programmed for 2021/22.

Update by Gabrielle Ward


Just a quick update on what to expect over the next couple of weeks. We would like to make you aware that we will be working on site over night starting from Monday 7th February for up to two weeks between the hours of 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday. During this time, we will be implementing a lane and lay-by closure along the A19 (please see the plan attached). Our working area will be in the woodland which you can also see on the map.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, however we would like to reassure you that all distruption will be kept to an absolute minimum. 

Please feel free to leave a comment below with any questions you may have.
