Flood prevention

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has recently published its Forth Estuary Local Plan District. It states that ‘3,300 residential properties and 480 non-residential properties [in the Water of Leith catchment area] are at a medium likelihood of flooding from one or more sources’.

There is a consultation on the plans for the Water of Leith catchment area at https://frm-scotland.org.uk/frmp/ph2_forth-estuary-lpd-10-draft-flood-risk-mana/
