Have your say on town flood de­fence plans

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

Peo­ple in Camp­bel­town are be­ing in­vited to have their say on de­sign pro­pos­als that have been de­vel­oped to help re­duce the risk of flood­ing in the town. Since the pre­vi­ous pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion event in Fe­bru­ary this year, Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil, in part­ner­ship with en­gi­neer­ing com­pany AE­COM, has looked at a num­ber of de­sign op­tions to re­duce flood risk. The pre­ferred de­sign pro­pos­als have now been de­vel­oped and the views of Camp­bel­town res­i­dents are be­ing sought at a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion event on Thurs­day Oc­to­ber 4, from 5pm un­til 9pm, in the town hall. This is a drop-in event, with a pre­sen­ta­tion of the pre­ferred scheme pro­pos­als tak­ing place from 6.30pm un­til 7.30pm. The coun­cil’s pol­icy lead for roads and amenity ser­vices Coun­cil­lor Roddy McCuish said: ‘This is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal peo­ple to have their say on plans that will help to min­imise flood­ing and ben­e­fit the whole com­mu­nity. ‘The views of our res­i­dents are vi­tal, so it is re­ally im­por­tant that as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble at­tend. Fol­low­ing the con­sul­ta­tion, we will con­sider op­tions for fund­ing the pro­ject in or­der to make it a re­al­ity.’ Com­ments on the pre­ferred scheme pro­pos­als can also be emailed to camp­bel­town. com­ments.uki@ ae­com.com
