“At present there is a lot of confusion and blame shifting between the different agencies involved.
“The questions I am putting to SEPA, Perth and Kinross Council and Scottish Water aim to clarify matters.”
Ms Cunningham is seeking to find out what the agencies have done about flood mitigation, when council officials were made aware of the flooding in Comrie and its severity, details of instances of the Ruchill bursting its banks going back to 1980, PKC’s involvement in establishing a flood risk advisory group for the area around the village, and copies of a number of documents.
She has also asked if any charges have been levied on landowners who failed to comply with requests made by PKC – a question also put to SEPA – as part of their powers in flood management legislation.
Her questions to SEPA included requests for copies of documentsand issues about an advisory group.
Scottish Water was asked whether a flood risk assessment for the village’s sewage system existed.
