S5W-08684: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 5 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what natural flood management measures are being progressed with funding allocated as part of its 10-year flood funding strategy with COSLA.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 25 April 2017

The 14 Flood Risk Management Strategies and Local Plans include 104 actions with a natural flood management element; most of these actions are flood studies. Nearly all of the flood studies will be funded through this budget. Where local authorities subsequently decide to implement natural flood management measures, this budget will also be the main source of funds for works on the ground.
