Aberdeenshire Council – Flood Damage Replacement and Repair
The recent flood events of 2015/16 have obviously resulted in serious impacts on properties, businesses and river interests across Aberdeenshire. It is acknowledged that every effort needs to be made to ensure expediency in the replacement/repair of these damaged properties, fishing huts, structures, access tracks etc. Aberdeenshire Council have agreed a multi-agency approach to assist in this process, whereby a process of guidance and best advice is now available to allow:
• Immediate works to take place either without the need for formal consent
• Where there is doubt a rapid process of submission and assessment through a single proforma or
• Where consent is needed, a fast track process to determination of applications.
If submitting electronically please title the e mail ‘Flooding Proforma’. Submission can also be by post/hand delivered to any of the area offices. If possible please mark on outside of envelope ‘Flooding Proforma’ to assist in quick identification.
