Director - Flood Risk Management
RPS are presently assisting North and South Ayrshire Councils in the development of a Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) for the Ayrshire Coastline
The SMP is required to provide guidance to operating authorities and regulatory bodies as to future sustainable flood and coastal erosion risk management. This will provide an agreed high level approach, intent and framework for management and demonstrate the compliance with the requirements of the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009.
The SMP will for the first time consider all of the processes prevalent along the Ayrshire Coastline as a whole. It will consider the environmental, economic and cultural heritage considerations and propose an overall strategy to manage competing needs of stakeholders and the public.
In the assessment of options and policies the SMP will take account of future anticipated climatic change, the future land use requirements of the growing population along the Ayrshire coast and the opinions and requirements of the local communities.
