New Flood Prevention Scheme

COMPUTER models of land in the Portpatrick and Stranraer areas will be used to try to cut flooding.

Both places were hit after heavy rain early in October last year.

Now Dumfries and Galloway Council are involved in drawing up flood prevention schemes aimed at avoiding a repeat.

A Flood Prevention Scheme for Portpatrick was confirmed more than ten years ago by the Secretary of State after earlier flooding but was never implemented by the then regional council.

That is now being reviewed and reassessed and hydrological consultants are carrying out computer modelling of the Dinvin Burn catchment.

An environmental impact assessment is nearing completion and will form part of the evidence submitted to the Scottish Executive in an application for funding.
