A council meeting is being held to discuss the future of flood defences for Dumfries Whitesands.
Councillors from the planning, housing and environment committee, will discuss a 'masterplan' for flooding problem areas in the town.
Some councillors are concerned that there is still no timescale set for the project and no funding proposals are in place.
"The masterplan is a step forward but the report coming to the committee doesn't really tell us much more than we heard in September when the council held a charette to discuss proposals for a flood prevention scheme.
"There is still no clear timetable, no costings and no evidence that other than £150,000 for yet more design work, there is any funding.
"We need to see clear timescales set for when work would actually begin on flood prevention measures and have discussions with the Scottish Government to ensure that funding is put in place. "
