To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to consult the public on its development of the second national flood risk assessment.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 25 September 2018
The second National Flood Risk Assessment (NFRA) has been developed by SEPA as part of its duties under the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009. SEPA ran a three month public consultation on the NFRA from the beginning of May to the end of July 2018.
The consultation covered the proposed Potentially Vulnerable Areas and also an overview of the NFRA and the approach taken by SEPA to its development. An analysis of the 263 responses received as part the consultation can be found on SEPA’s website at https://www.sepa.org.uk/media/375826/frm-in-scotland-pva-2018_consultation-outcome-report.pdf .
