Surface Water Management Plans Public Consultation Events

As part of its role under the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009 (FRM Act), East Dunbartonshire Council (EDC) is developing Surface Water Management Plans (SWMPs) for Bearsden, Milngavie and Bishopbriggs which are all located within identified Potentially Vulnerable Areas (PVA’s) of flood risk. The Council has identified Bearsden, Milngavie and Bishopbriggs as its three priority areas to be completed within the first cycle of the FRM Act (2016-2022).

The three SWMPs will assess the flood risks and identify long term, sustainable and achievable mitigation measures which can be implemented to manage the flood risk (including climate change) and reduce the flooding impacts in each town, and on their respective environments and economies - whilst at the same time considering opportunities for associated benefits to the local communities such as enhanced water quality, landscape, and amenity value as well as improved biodiversity.

To find out more about the project or share your flooding experiences with representatives from EDC and the project consultants (AECOM), an initial round of “drop-in” Public Consultation events are being held which are detailed in the following table.

Our consultation will be running from Monday 11 June 2018.
