41 Development at risk of flooding : Advice and consultation

We have developed a SEPA – Planning Authority Protocol to help us work more effectively with planning authorities on planning decisions affected by flood risk. The Protocol contains principles to be followed by SEPA and planning authorities regarding advice and consultation on flood risk issues. It has recently been updated to better reflect the requirements of the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009.
