Councillors have agreed a plan to guard Aberdeen against the impact of climate change.
A report, discussed by the city growth and resources committee yesterday, claimed there had been an increase in weather events affecting Aberdeen.
As a result, the local authority has created a plan to reduce and manage risks including flooding, coastal erosion and the impact on the city’s historical buildings.
Work has already been carried out to identify potentially vulnerable areas and a range of schemes are already in place, or in development, to help manage flood risk.

The report recommended making “shoreline plans”, which include maintaining coastal defences and strengthening protection where required.
The plan advocates upgrading properties to help future-proof buildings against the potential for heavy rainfall and warmer temperatures.
