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 update the local residents on the progress we have made since the Outline design was completed with regards to the engineering and landscape design development and seek the community`s opinion on the appearance, seating arrangements, colours and textures of the proposed seawalls and promenade.

The Council’s Heritage Team is also working with us to explore how we can enhance the aesthetic of the flood walls and promenade, however this element would require additional funding to be secured.

The community consultation events will be held online via the Zoom platform, access  via the http://www.north-ayrshire.gov.uk/MillportFPS website:
