Radcliffe and Redvales Flood Risk Management Scheme :: SD7904

The Radcliffe and Redvales Flood Risk Management Scheme (FRMS) aims to reduce the flood risk from the River Irwell south of Bury and west of Radcliffe to a 1% (or less) chance of flooding occurring in any one year.

There is a long history of flooding in the area from the river overtopping its banks. The Boxing Day 2015 event Link resulted in flood damage to over 700 residential buildings, multiple commercial properties and critical infrastructures such as Bury Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) and electricity substations.

The scheme is being delivered in phases with phase 1 consisting of work at Close Park, Morris Street and Dumers Lane. Phase 2 involves defences along the section of the river between Bury Grammar School and Hardy’s Gate Bridge.
