S5W-14568: Oliver Mundell (Dumfriesshire)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 9 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether a proposed a flood scheme can proceed under the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009 if there is a risk of flood water displacement.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 1 March 2018

Most flood protection schemes, by their nature, will result in flood water displacement but the aim of a scheme should be to reduce overall flood risk.
