An initiative to support manufacturing firms affected by the December 2015 floods was launched in early January 2016. The council is working with manufacturing expert advisors to provide support. The team, which includes experts from the flagship Manufacturing Advisory Service, part of the Business Growth Service, visited more than 30 manufacturing businesses to discuss the issues they faced as a result of flooding. The aim of this work was to understand the scale of the impact and to identify how businesses could be supported to get production started again.

As well as the financial assistance for businesses announced by the government, the council initiative offered manufacturers a wider package of support. This included assistance with searches for temporary premises, and advice on the process of getting production back up and running. The council also provided support to businesses in accessing funding for new premises and machinery from government and the Leeds City Region LEP.
