RESIDENTS and other interested parties will have a chance next week to see for themselves new flood protection measures proposed for Broughty Ferry.
 
Dundee City Council is hosting a day-long consultation event on Tuesday (DECEMBER 13) at the Castle Green Community Centre.
Will Dawson convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “Since the last public consultation we undertook in June our engineers have been working on refining the details of the project, trying to take on board comments and feedback from the people of the Ferry.
 
“This latest exhibition will give them a chance to see how their reaction has influenced the design so far and tell us more about the updated plans.”
 
The projected scheme aims to reduce the risk of coastal flooding in Broughty Ferry by constructing improved defences between Douglas Terrace and the castle.
 
A sample panel of the proposed flood protection wall will be on display at the notice board at Castle Pier and comments on the material and colour will also be welcomed.
 
On the day members of the city council’s design team will be available from 11am to 7pm to help answer questions, explain technical details and the thinking behind the plans at this stage.
