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
