The clean up operation has begun after the floods

Work has begun to clean up after the riverside flooding post-Storm Dennis.

City of York Council’s clean-up operation started yesterday (Wednesday, 19 February), but flood defences are staying firmly in place to continue protecting the city as heavy rain is expected this weekend.

Council leader Keith Aspden said:

  • As our clean-up operation starts, you’ll see our front line teams sweeping and cleaning paths and cycle routes across the city from today. We’ll also be carrying out additional inspections of our roads to repair potholes.

    York remains vibrant and exciting as usual, offering lots of activities and events for residents and visitors over this half-term.
