Within East Ayrshire, there is a possibility that flooding will arise as a result of adverse weather and severe storms. 

We, and our partners within the Ayrshire Local Resilience Partnership, have a multi-agency disruptive weather arrangements plan which also includes flooding. The plan is maintained and reviewed by the Ayrshire Civil Contingencies Team.

The objectives of the plan are:

  • to develop a corporate and co-ordinated response to disruptive weather incidents
  • to develop and produce proactive contingency measures for dealing with disruptive weather affecting Council property, non-Council property (commercial and residential), transport routes, villages isolated by flood waters and care of the displaced
  • to provide recognised and agreed procedures for obtaining assistance from Central Government, the military forces and any other organisations
