Fooding

Dunglass Road entrance into woodland

We have been investigating the flow rates and looking at various options. This has now been completed and forms a draft flooding assessment. Once the document has been approved by the group, this will go into the Development Plan which will be used in funding applications. In addition to this we are also actively looking at, and have already applied for, funding to carry out this work.
