The publication of the Tay Estuary and Montrose Basin Flood Risk Management Plan is an important milestone in implementing the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009.
The plan translates this legislation into actions to reduce the damage and distress caused by flooding over the first implementation cycle from 2016 to 2022.
There are 19 areas that have been identified as being potentially vulnerable to flood risk across the Tay Estuary and Montrose Basin local plan district.
Within these areas, there are approximately 3490 residential and 1210 non-residential properties at risk from flooding. The estimated annual average damage of these flood risks is approximately £13.6million.
This plan presents actions to avoid and reduce the risk of flooding, and prepare and protect ourselves and our communities within these potentially vulnerable areas and across the local plan district.
Perth & Kinross Council have created the Tay Local Flood Risk Management Plans which contain information relating to Kirriemuir & Forfar.
