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
