Will Pickering get £800,000 of flood defences?

Will Pickering get £800,000 of flood defences?

4:22pm 28th July 2010


Residents of a North Yorkshire market town will find out later whether they're getting £800,000 of flood defences.

Pickering has flooded several times since 1999 and residents have called for protection.

Tonight Ryedale District Council will decide whether to splash the cash on building two earth embankments to hold back flood water from Pickering beck.

If approved the Environment Agency will contribute another £150,000 towards the scheme.
