What is a flood risk management plan?
A flood risk management plan is a document that explains how bodies will work together to reduce the effects of flooding on our communities. Each plan covers a period of 6 years.
In Scotland, flood risk management plans are produced for 14 'Local Plan Districts'. You can find out more about these districts and how plans are developed on the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) website.
Forth Local Flood Risk Management Plan
Stirling Council is the lead local authority for the Forth Local Plan District. This means we're responsible for publishing this area's plan, which is known as the Forth Local Flood Risk Management Plan.
We publish this plan, and progress reports related to it, on behalf of:
- Clackmannanshire Council
- Falkirk Council
- Fife Council
- Forestry Commission Scotland
- Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority
- Perth and Kinross Council
- Scottish Water
- Stirling Council
In December 2022, we published the Forth Local Flood Risk Management Plan for 2022 to 2028.
To accompany the plan, we've produced a 'storymap' for each of the 8 potentially vulnerable areas. You can use these interactive maps to:
- view target areas within potential vulnerable areas
- read the corresponding action plans
You can read the Forth Local Flood Risk Management Plan for 2016 to 2022 below.
In 2019, we published an interim report on this plan.
In December 2022, we published the final report on this plan. This report covers the actions that the partnership took from 2016 to 2022.
