Landscaping

From the early stages of the project, the Project Team has worked closely with the relevant land owners and authorities to develop reinstatement and landscaping plans which are appropriate to the surrounding environment, help the flood defences to sit comfortably within their surroundings (as far as possible), allow the Council to meet its statutory responsibility to maintain the flood defence structures in the years to come and, if possible and appropriate, meet the aspirations and requirements of the land owner.

The drawings below are the landscaping proposals which were approved under the Flood Risk Management Act in 2012. These proposals were the product of a number of year’s comprehensive consultation with the appropriate stakeholders - and the wider public – during the initial planning and design stages of the project.

Updated Plans for Areas Nearing Completion

Discussions with the relevant stakeholders have continued since the Scheme was approved in 2012 and as such the landscaping proposals have evolved over the past 3 to 4 years.

The drawings below show updated plans for the Philiphaugh and Riverside areas. It should be noted that while these areas are now nearing completion, the landscaping plans will continue to evolve right up to the moment when the proposals are implemented.

Updated plans for the other areas will be uploaded to this page in due course.
