North Yorkshire

Flooding issues and the Skipton flood protection scheme

  • Wednesday 24 May 2017
  • 13.30 - 17.00
  • Craven Council offices, Skipton

This seminar and study tour will look at the works for the flood protection scheme for Skipton, now almost complete. The scheme won the RTPI Yorkshire Award for Planning Excellence in 2016. It is hoped that a comparison with the earlier flood protection scheme for Pickering can be made. Issues of sustainable drainage and flood risk assessment will be discussed.

In partnership with the Environment Agency and kindly sponsored by Curtins.

East Yorkshire

Bridlington's Regeneration - Vision and Delivery

  • Tuesday 4th July 2017
  • 12.30 - 15.30
  • The Spa, Bridlington

Bridlington's heyday as a seaside resort has passed and, like many British coastal towns, it faces serious socio-economic challenges with high levels of multiple deprivation. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council adopted an Area Action Plan for the Town Centre in January 2013 and has been working closely with partners including both the Humber and York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnerships to deliver its vision of being 'a great place to live by the seaside. Visitors welcome'. This seminar and study tour will cover what has already been achieved in realising that vision, and the extensive work underway and still planned.

In partnership with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

South Yorkshire

We will be holding a seminar and study tour in September in Barnsley, in partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council. Details coming soon.

West Yorkshire

We will be holding a seminar on Viability in October in Leeds. Details coming soon.
