Flood study for Rothesay

The council has commissioned a flood study for Rothesay to further investigate and understand the flood risks.

The study will include a review of the existing flood protection scheme, which will investigate how water seeps and pools behind the seawall. There will also be consultation with Scottish Water about how their local systems operate.

We will also be looking at how local properties can withstand flooding incidents. From 21 June, we have commissioned consultants, Aspect, to carry out a topographical survey which will include checking property threshold levels.

The surveyor will not need access to the properties included in the survey. This work will be completed from the outside by picking up doorway levels on individual properties.

Additional investigations at this stage of the flood study will include ground investigations along the seawall, and CCTV surveys of the culverts are being planned for July.
