Flood Risk Management Act Guidance published by Scottish Government

Guidance covers key actions to reduce flood risk including:

  • A reduction in the number of people, homes and property at risk of flooding as a result of public funds being invested in actions that protect the most vulnerable and those areas at greatest risk of flooding
  • Rural and urban landscapes with space to store water and slow down the progress of floods.
  • Integrated drainage that decreases burdens on our sewer systems while also delivering reduced flood risk and an improved water environment

Three key milestones.

  • National Flood Hazard Assessment 2011
  • Flood Hazard and Flood Risk Strategies 2016
  • Local Flood Risk Management Plans 2017
