Time is running out, sadly I only received this today:
Comrie Flood Protection Scheme
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) – Information Request
Under the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009, Perth & Kinross Council (PKC) are developing a flood prevention scheme (FPS) for the village of Comrie in Perthshire.
PKC and their consulting engineers have assessed a series of flood risk management options to manage the risk of flooding in Comrie from the Water of Ruchill, the River Earn and the River Lednock. The Comrie FPS has assessed each of the options and a preferred option of direct defences comprising the construction of walls and/or embankments has been chosen. This ‘preferred’ option is currently being developed for future publication under the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act.
Sweco have been appointed by PKC to design and develop the preferred option for the Comrie FPS. Sweco are also undertaking the EIA that will be undertaken to identify and assess any likely significant impacts that the scheme may have upon the environment. The current project programme is that the EIA will be submitted in late 2018.
We are writing to you now to request information that may be of use as part of our baseline data gathering exercise for the area. The attached plan shows the preferred scheme layout and the extent of our search area.
We would appreciate a response by 15th January 2018 but if you have any queries in the meantime or would like to pass on any information that you feel is valuable to us at this stage then please do not hesitate to contact me on the details provided below.
For further information on the Comrie FPS project you can also view updates on the project website (http://www.pkc.gov.uk/comriefloodscheme).
We look forward to engaging with you on this project as the work progresses.
