Communities and partners in Kincardine & Mearns are more resilient and adaptive to current and future effects of climate change, including severe weather. 

10.1 A coordinated approach will be taken to support communities in K&M to develop their resilience to severe weather by developing a user-friendly template for working Community Resilience Plans.  This will be piloted by an appropriate community before being made available to other interested communities

10.2 Explore interest and options for facilitating training with communities in the carrying out of Community Resilience Plans.

Scottish Flood Forum; Grampian Housing; Aberdeenshire Council’s Sustainability Officer & relevant Infrastructure Service officers; Community Councils; Community Flood Action Groups; K&M Environmental Forum, Police Scotland & other interested stakeholders

Meetings have continued to develop a draft template and further amendments are being undertaken by Paul Hendy, Scottish Flood Forum.

These will be presented at a future meeting in March.

Paul has suggested that many of the Flood Groups could be approached to pilot the document.

Training with communities around the carrying out of Community Resilience Plans – this training package has not progressed as the template is still in draft development. It is hoped that delivery may be through the Flood Forum groups.

Next steps:
Work is continuing for all of these actions.
