Highland Council has committed to initiating an action plan to address the concerns of local residents in Dingwall following a spate of flash flooding in the town.
The pledge has come after a drop-in session was held with the local community where around 60 people attended to hear from the various organisations involved.
Highland Council chief executive Donna Manson said the local authority was committed to ensuring a plan is put in place should flash flooding reoccur.
A further event is to take place next month to update locals on the procedures being put in place to ensure their concerns are being addressed.
Mrs Manson said: “I would like to thank all those residents who came along to the drop-in event at the start of the month.
“The information people are able to provide locally is extremely helpful to the flood team and I am grateful to everyone for their input.
“I would also like to again commend our staff who worked extremely hard on the night of the flood in July and who gave up their holiday time this week to once again assist with flooding issues and to come along to help with the drop-in session.”
A recovery project team is in the process of being set up by the council, with the idea that the team will be responsible for taking forward action in relation to service provision and flood scheme planning.
Budget leader Alister Mackinnon added that the council was doing everything in its power to ensure measures are taken should any further flooding come in the future.
He added: “We understand how frustrating and upsetting it has been for many people to have their homes flooded during this period of intense rainfall.
“Whilst we can’t stop the rain, we are committed to doing everything we possibly can to reduce the impacts of any further severe weather event.”
The next update is planned for Monday, September 16, with local infrastructure, planning, flood protection and insurance just a few of the items scheduled for the agenda.
