A Strategic Flood Risk Assessment has been undertaken to satisfy the requirements placed on local authorities under section 1 of the Flood Risk Management (Scotland) Act 2009. This requires local authorities to exercise their flood risk related functions with a view to reducing overall flood risk and promoting sustainable flood risk management. The assessment looks at a number of potential sources of flood risk which may be relevant for development in Aberdeen.
An Onshore Wind Spatial Framework has been prepared to assess the opportunities for identifying areas suitable for wind turbine developments. Limited areas were identified as suitable for wind turbine development using the guidance within Scottish Planning Policy. However, all locations are covered by greenbelt policy which does not identify it as a suitable location for wind turbine development. The countryside surrounding Aberdeen within the local authority boundary is limited to a small area and together with the presence of Aberdeen Airport there is not the scope to identify suitable sites for large scale wind farms.
