Strategy Overview: Remediation & supervision
The £45 million Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme (FAS) is one of the largest river flood defence schemes in the country. It will see major construction work along the River Aire in the city centre and Holbeck extending 4.3km between Leeds train station and Thwaite Mills.
Flood risk is increasing throughout the UK and in recent years Leeds city centre has come close to flooding several times. There are no formal flood defences along the River Aire.
