Flood Risk Management Plans 2021-27: Strategic Environmental Assessment

Closed 31 Oct 2021

Opened 30 Jul 2021


This is the consultation for the environmental report for the 14 draft flood risk management plans, covering the period 2021 to 2027, that set out the future direction and priorities for managing flooding in Scotland. The environmental report presents the results of a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) carried out as part of the preparation of the flood risk management plans.  

Why your views matter

Scotland’s environment is varied with an extensive coastline, numerous freshwater and sea lochs, large areas of forest, moorlands, peatlands and uplands. Extensive areas of land are protected for their habitats and species. The quality of the environment, landscape and rich cultural heritage make extremely important contributions to Scotland’s economy and the wellbeing of its people.   

The environmental report is being consulted on so that people can understand and comment on, how environmental effects are taken into account in the development of the final flood risk management plans.
