A public event will be held next month as part of the Ellon Flood Scheme Appraisal Study.

The public event will be held on Monday, December 3, between 7pm and 9pm in the Atrium at Ellon Academy.

The meeting will give the community an opportunity to have their say on the results of the data gathering which has taken place over the past year and will look at the modelling work which shows potential impacts of flooding in the community.

It also takes into account the effect of the flooding which hit the town in 2016.

This is an important stage in confirming a collective agreement on the specific flood risk around Ellon and everyone with an interest is encouraged to take part.

Information gathered will be taken forward for consideration at the next stages of the study, which includes identifying options and appraisal of their feasibility to manage the local flood risk.
