Comment from Leader of Leeds City Council on decision to fund feasibility study for Leeds flood defences

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said:

“We welcome the Minister’s commitment of funding for a full analysis of how Leeds could be protected from devastating floods it the future. It is a step in the right direction but it still doesn’t go far enough. A month on from the floods people and businesses are still picking up the pieces and will be for some time so we will continue to push for that firm and early commitment that Leeds will get the full flood protection it needs and deserves on their behalf.”
