Flood risk managers to discuss issues at public event in Hopeman

People in Hopeman are to be given an opportunity to have their say on flooding that affected their community in August.

Moray Council’s flood risk management team will be available to gather information from residents and learn first hand how events unfolded that led to the unprecedented flooding that affected a number of homes in the village.

Following on from a similar fact-finding mission in Dallas, villagers will be asked to provide any photographs or video footage that might have been taken of the flooding as well as provide any additional information they might have.

The consultation will take place at the Hopeman Memorial Hall from 4pm until 7.30pm on Thursday, October 16.

As well as members of the flood management team representatives of the Scottish Flood Forum and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency will be on hand to deal with questions on issues such as personal flood protection or raising flood risk awareness.
