Chance to have your say on River Peffery flood protection proposals
The Highland Council has invited local residents of Dingwall and Blairninich to attend a public exhibition highlighting proposals for flood prevention measures along the River Peffery
The Council is currently developing a Flood Protection Study (FPS) for the River to identify solutions that will alleviate the risk of flooding to locations in Blairninich and Dingwall.
The exhibition, which takes place from 12 noon until 7pm on Monday 28 August at Dingwall Town Hall, will show members of the public what types of measures are currently being considered, their locations and their impacts.
Staff from The Highland Council and consultants CH2M will be at the exhibition to discuss the measures, answer any questions and gather any initial comments from people to the various proposals at this early stage.
The Dingwall and Seaforth Ward Councillors are encouraging as many people as possible to come along. They said: “This is a good opportunity for folk to come along to view the work done to date and to see how the study is progressing.
“Feedback from the public, interested stakeholders, landowners, residents and businesses is a vital part of pulling together a flood study as it will help the council to determine which of the possible measures is preferred by the community.”
If you are unable to attend the exhibition the information on display will be made available on The Highland Council website along with a feedback form. Future updates and notices regarding the scheme can be viewed here: http://www.highland.gov.uk/info/1226/emergencies/80/flood_alleviation_schemes
