The people of Cumbrae are to be given a further opportunity to share their views on ambitious plans to improve flood protection at Millport.
North Ayrshire Council is to hold two separate community workshop sessions on Monday, 20 March and Tuesday, 21 March, to discuss the potential designs for Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme.
The potential designs will be shared at the workshops and will detail the work that has been undertaken to address questions raised by local residents during the initial design workshops that were held at the end of 2016.
Next week’s public consultation events will feature plans to help develop marine tourism on the island. The Council’s Economy and Communities Team is keen to further develop Millport as a key tourism destination on the Firth of Clyde and this forms a key part of the proposed Ayrshire Growth Deal. Officers will be on hand to explain the proposals in more detail.
The timetable for both days is as follows: 10.30am – 6pm Open public exhibition on Flood Protection Scheme & marine tourism plans, 11am to 11.40am and 11.45am to 12.30pm - Site walkover with Marine Tourism Officers, 3.30pm - 30-minute presentation on Marine Tourism, 4pm - 30-minute presentation on Flood Protection Scheme, 4.30pm to 6pm - Community design workshop
The public consultation events will take place in the DA Hall Millport behind the Garrison.
Comments can be made via a number of means, including forms provided at the events, online through the Flooding section of or by post to Cunninghame House, Irvine, KA12 8EE. A collection box for feedback questionnaires will placed at Millport Library.
Following the public consultation, all comments on the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme should be submitted by 21 April.
