Flood risk management plans

We work together with other partners to create flood risk management plans.

Partners include SEPA, Scottish Water, other councils and national parks.

The plans set out how we tackle flooding and reduce the impact of unpredictable weather.

Clyde and Loch Lomond local district plan

We're members of the Clyde and Loch Lomond (CaLL) district. Glasgow City Council is the lead authority and sets out the plan. We carry out the work set out in East Renfrewshire.

SEPA are in charge of coordinating work to deal with flood across Scotland.

Local flood risk management plan

We must also publish a local flood risk plan.

Our plan is consistent with SEPA's strategy but will set out how we manage local actions.

It also includes how we will organise and fund this work.

Watercourse inspections and clearance

We have a duty to look after areas of water. We carry out work any work if it can greatly reduce the risk of flooding.

We carry out this work by priority.

Programmed inspections

We inspect watercourses. This is flowing water including estuaries, rivers and stream.

We also inspect steel grills and trash screens.

We carry out these inspections in these areas in order of priority:

  • Barrhead
  • Busby
  • Clarkston
  • Eaglesham
  • Newton Mearns
  • Neilston
