Broughty Ferry Flood Protection Scheme05/10/18
FINAL DETAILS of the proposed flood protection scheme for a Dundee community are set to go on display, as the notice of the confirmed Flood Protection Scheme is published.
Dundee City Council’s plans to reduce the impact of any future flooding in Broughty Ferry have been the subject of detailed design and consideration by more than 200 residents and other interested parties since 2016.
Mark Flynn depute convener of the council’s city development committee said: “The people of The Ferry have been closely involved in this scheme from the start.
“Every effort has been made to ensure that while we put in measures to protect people and property in that part of The Ferry the scheme is also attractive and in keeping with the buildings and streetscape around it.
“Now that we have reached the final design stage we are sharing what the scheme will ultimately look like when work starts early next year.”
The scheme is designed to reduce the risk of flooding to residential, open space, community and businesses within Broughty Ferry through works along Douglas Terrace, James Place, Fisher Street and Beach Crescent.
Full details of the proposals can be seen for free during normal office hours at the reception of Dundee House, 50 Lindsay Street or Broughty Ferry Library in Queen Street.
