Flood Damage to Traditional Buildings

Some areas of Scotland have always suffered from periodic flooding as part of natural weather events and as a consequence of land use, but in recent years the frequency and scale of flood events has increased. Predictions for climate change indicate that the frequency and severity of flood events throughout Scotland are likely to get worse over the coming years. This INFORM offers guidance on how to protect traditional buildings from flood damage, and how to mitigate the effects if flooding does occur.
