SEPA consults on Ayrshire Flood Risk Management Plan

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is currently running the second part of its public consultation on the Ayrshire Flood Risk Management Plan (previously called the flood risk management strategies). 

You may remember phase one of the consultation opened on the 21 December 2020 with draft information for the flood risk management plans available for review. This consisted of background information for the Local Plan District and Potentially Vulnerable Areas (PVAs) and identifies localised target areas.

In phase two, draft information on the flood risk management plan and local flood risk management plan is available along with consultation questions.

The information in phase two includes draft objectives and actions to manage flooding in target areas with additional detail on how and when the actions from the flood risk management plans will be delivered and coordinated locally.

Kenneth Gibson MSP said:

“It’s a real positive that the Upper Garnock Flood Protection Scheme and the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme are currently both being progressed; made possible thanks to the SNP Government providing 80% of the funding.

“I encourage everyone to can have your say on how flood risk is managed in Scotland in the future and participate in the consultation.”

Participate in the Flood Risk Management Plan: Ayrshire Local Plan District consultation by 31 October 2021.
