On the 19th September 2018 the City of York Council published its Scoping Opinion with regard to the works likely to seriously affect Rawcliffe Meadows. The full report is on the Councils website here.
The Council’s appraisal does state that “Consultation feedback provided to date challenges the current justification for the flood defence works as proposed and whether the mitigation will be adequate. These issues should be addressed in the EIA“.
Our thanks to those who responded to the consultation.
