The FoPV are taking a close interest in the council's latest consultations for potential flood defences within the Porter Valley. You may be aware that the Council has now commenced consultation on the next phase of its Protecting Sheffield from Flooding programme. The plans include proposed projects within the Porter Valley such as barriers at three locations including one at Endcliffe Park and we would encourage you to see what is being considered by looking at the Councils website at floodprotectionsheffield.com.
We have now completed the FoPV response to these consultations after receiving comments and suggestions from our members.
