The Environment Agency (EA) expects its Modelling and Appraisal Study for Earby Beck and its Tributaries to be completed in April 2018. The EA will make the findings public on completion.

The EA supports the Earby Community Property Flood Resilience Scheme but needs to be sure that the proposed temporary flood barriers will not increase flood risk elsewhere. The EA has commissioned further modelling work to assess this risk which will begin in February 2018 and is due for completion in March 2018.
