Whitesands flood scheme approved

Section:  Dumfries and West, Uncategorised  | Tags:

A controversial scheme to prevent flooding on the Whitesands in Dumfries has been given the go ahead by Scottish ministers.

A letter published this week states that Dumfries and Galloway Council’s plan to create an earth bund flood defence is a “justifiable, technically feasible and cost effective solution to the risk of regular and potentially devastating effects of flooding at Whitesands.”

The letter was published more than a year after a public local inquiry into the scheme was held in Dumfries.

More details to follow.
