On the 10th November 2020 the Cabinet reached the final decision and confirmed the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme without modification, agreed the indicative project timescale and approved the commencement of the final design of the scheme.
The scheme became operational on 13th January 2021 and the detailed design development started. North Ayrshire Council is developing the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme with close community involvement.
The Council would like to provide further updates to the residents on the progress we have made since the April 2021 community consultation with regards to the engineering and landscape design development. We will seek the community`s opinion on the appearance, seating and shelter arrangements, textures of the proposed seawalls and promenade.
The community consultation events are proposed to be held at the Garrison House in Millport on the following dates:
Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th September 2021:
10.30am – 11.00am 30-minute presentation on the Flood Protection Scheme
11.00am – 4.00pm Open discussion
4.00pm – 4.30pm 30-minute presentation on the Flood Protection Scheme
4.30pm – 6.00pm Open discussion
Comments can be made using the online questionnaire via the NAC Flooding Website (Millport Coastal FPS). A limited number of paper questionnaires will be provided at Garrison House.
Following the public consultation, all comments on the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme should be submitted by Monday 11th October 2021. A collection box for the paper copies of the questionnaire will be placed at Garrison House.
