Scottish Borders Council
FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT (SCOTLAND) ACT 2009
AND THE FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT (FLOOD
PROTECTION SCHEMES, POTENTIALLY VULNERABLE
AREAS AND LOCAL PLAN DISTRICTS) (SCOTLAND)
REGULATIONS 2010
ROMANNOBRIDGE FLOOD PROTECTION SCHEME 2020
In accordance with Section 60 and Schedule 2 of the above Act and Parts II, III
& IV of the above Regulations, the Council proposes the Romannobridge Flood
Protection Scheme. This constitutes a notice under Paragraph 1 of Schedule 2
of the Act.
The effects of the proposed flood protection operations will be:
• To mitigate the effects of flooding from the Lyne Water to residential properties
on the A701 and B7059 through the provision of a flood embankment within the
field adjacent to the A701 within Romannobridge; the “Caravan Field”.
• To mitigate the effects of flooding from the Lyne Water to residential property
on the A701 by the provision of raised kerbs on the A701.
• To mitigate the effects of flooding from the Lyne Water to residential property
on the A701 and B7059 through the removal of soil at the bridge arch furthest
from the Lyne Water.
Scheme documents can be inspected from 07/02/2020 until the date a decision is
made under paragraphs 4(1), 7(4) or, as the case may be, 9(1) of Schedule 2 of the
above Act at:
Newlands Activity Centre, Romanno Bridge, Peeblesshire, EH46 7BZ between
07/02/2020 and 06/03/2020, Monday to Friday 9am-10pm, Saturdays 11am-5pm
and Sundays 11am-9pm.
Objections in writing can be made about the scheme during the period from
07/02/2020 to 06/03/2020 inclusive to: the Chief Legal Officer, Scottish Borders
Council, Council Headquarters, Newtown St Boswells, Melrose TD6 0SA or by
email to: legal@scotborders.gov.uk.
Any objection to the proposed scheme must be accompanied by a statement
of reasons for the objection. Where an objector has an interest in any land on
which the proposed operations are to be carried out or which may be affected by
any of the proposed operations or by any alteration in the flow of water caused
by any of the operations that person’s objection must include details of the land
in which the objector has an interest, disclosure of the nature of the objector’s
interest in the land, and details of which aspects of the proposed operations
affect the objector.
If no valid objections are made to the scheme, then the Council must make the
final decision to confirm or reject the proposed scheme. If, however there are
objections which are not valid objections under Paragraph 3(2) of Schedule 2
of the Act, the Council may make a preliminary decision and hold a hearing to
consider the proposed scheme, before confirming or rejecting the scheme.
Where valid objections are made to the scheme, the Council will consider the
objections and make a preliminary decision to either (a) confirm the proposed
scheme without modification, or (b) confirm the proposed scheme with
modifications, or (c) reject the proposed scheme. Where an objection is received
from a relevant objector, who is a person to whom Paragraph 5(6) of Schedule 2
of the Act applies, the Council must notify Scottish Ministers of the preliminary
decision. The Scottish Ministers must then decide whether to consider the
scheme or not. If the Scottish Ministers decide to consider the scheme and valid
objections remain, then the Scottish Ministers must cause a Public Local Inquiry
to be held. After considering the outcome of the Public Local Inquiry, the Scottish
Ministers must make the final decision to: (a) confirm the proposed scheme
without modification, or (b) confirm the proposed scheme with modifications,
or (c) reject the proposed scheme. Where the Scottish Ministers decide not to
consider the scheme; the Council must hold a hearing to consider the proposed
scheme. Following the outcome of the hearing, the Council must make the final
decision to (a) confirm the proposed scheme without modification, or (b) confirm
the proposed scheme with modifications, or (c) reject the proposed scheme.
Notification of the final decision, whether made by the Council or the Scottish
Ministers will be given.
