Natural Flood Management Facilitation

Lead Partner:
Galloway Glens Scheme

Based on the recommendations of the Natural Flood Management Study undertaken through the Development phase and in line with best-practice guidance from partners including SEPA, D&G Council’s Flood Team and Tweed Forum, this project will take a long-term and sustainable approach to the introduction and undertaking of Natural Flood Management measures in the Ken-Dee valley. The project, supported by 0.2fte of the Land Management & Access Officer’s time will build on relationships initiated in the Development phase to introduce the Natural Flood Management approach across the complex and fragmented land ownership of the Galloway Glens area, provide necessary specialist NFM expertise in undertaking the work identified and then record and publish a consolidated overview of NFM measures in place and the projected impact of these works.
