A Barratt Homes development near Leeds has seen the installation of an underground carlow tank – thought to be the largest in Yorkshire – to assist with flood alleviation on the site.
The residential carlow tank, which measures 96m by 27.4m – the length of a football pitch – has been installed at St Oswald’s View in Methley, and is the largest ever to be implemented at a Barratt Homes Yorkshire West development.
Elite Construcciones were commissioned to build and install the carlow tank stormwater attenuation system.
The tank at Methley covers an area of over half an acre, holding 2.3 million litres of stormwater and took seven weeks to install
The installation was an integral part of the planning process and preparation for the development, with Barratt Homes taking measures to ensure the area is protected before constructing the new homes.
