Over the past three years we have worked with the Brompton Flood Prevention Group (BFPG), Environment Agency, Natural England, North Yorkshire County Council and local landowners to help deliver a range Natural Flood Management (NFM) measures in the Brompton Beck catchment, focusing on Ing Beck.
Over the three years a wide range of NFM measures have been used to reduce the flood peak in Brompton Beck as it flows through the village of Brompton. Achievements include:
- 650 trees planted
- 3 km hedge planting (16500 hedge plants)
- 5 leaky dams
- 1 pond and 1 flood basin (combined maximum storage of 3825 m3)
