Three years after Storm Frank hit Peebles, flood protection plans are now on display in the town.

Peebles was left underwater after a storm in December 2015, the flood exhibition will allow local residents to ask questions about the study process and comment on potential action that could be taken to reduce the risk of the town flooding again.

With this in mind, the opinion of local people in Peebles is essential. The flood study exhibition is on throughout the afternoon and evening and I would encourage anyone with an interest to pop in to look at and discuss the options with Council and Scottish Water staff."

– Cllr GORDON EDGAR, SCOTTISH BORDERS COUNCIL'S EXECUTIVE MEMBER FOR ROADS AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Along with the exhibition, members of Scottish Borders Council's project team and Scottish Water will be there to answer queries.

It will be held MacFarlane Hall at Peebles Parish Church today from 12pm - 8pm.
