The Environment Agency, Burnley Borough Council and partners have been working together to develop proposals for a Padiham Flood Risk Management Scheme. This includes flood walls and earth embankments as well as modifications to highways.

The proposals will better protect over 150 homes, businesses, public buildings and key infrastructure in central Padiham. It will manage flood risk from the River Calder, Green Brook and surface water.

This is a one-time opportunity to deliver flood defences for Padiham. It is critical that the designs are undertaken correctly so that the defences are of a high standard. This will better protect the town in the future against the predicted increased flood impacts caused by climate change
