The potential flood area has been identified and we’ve agreed with the Council and Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), which areas can be developed on: no areas that are at risk of flooding will have homes built on them.
Surface water will be managed through Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS). Drainage will be improved with surface water draining to a retention basin which will manage outflow to the Tod Burn. This will ensure there is no detrimental impact on the Tod Burn downstream of the development. As a result, existing flooding problems from the Burn will be improved.
