Asked by: Annabelle Ewing, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 22 May 2013
To ask the Scottish Government whether it keeps under review matters arising from flooding incidents in Fife.
Current status: Answered by Paul Wheelhouse on 4 June 2013
The Scottish Government recognises the misery and distress flooding can bring. That is why my officials remain in regular contact with officials from local authorities across Scotland via the various stakeholder groups established to assist with the implementation of the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009, as well as through the local authority SCOTS flood risk management group.
Where flooding events do happen, the Scottish Government would be in contact with responders, such as Fife Council, to understand the nature of the impact, and would ask to be kept informed of any flood risk management work that was planned as a result of the incident.
