Impacts of winter 2015/16 flooding in and around Ballater and in the Garioch: overview of findings from Project Year 1

The purpose of the Assessing the Impacts of Flooding project is to better understand the impacts of flooding upon people and communities and to consider what types of support and advice are needed at different stages of a long term recovery.  Over a 36 month period, the project will advance our understanding of these long term impacts, contribute to better flood risk management and make suggestions as to how personal and community resilience may be supported and enhanced.  This report provides an overview of the findings from year 1 of the study.
