North Ayrshire Council is developing the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme with close community involvement.
The Council would like to update the local residents on its progress. A Scheme Recommendation Report has been prepared which addresses technical, economic and environmental considerations and considers the additional benefits of economic regeneration of Millport. The report recommends a preferred solution, which has been presented to North Ayrshire Council’s Cabinet.
Alongside the Flood Protection Scheme, the Council’s Economic and Development Team is also looking at the potential to develop Millport further as a key tourism destination on the Firth of Clyde. North Ayrshire Council are working on an Ayrshire Growth Deal for Marine Tourism.
A Consultation event took place on 19 and 20 August 2019 at Garrison House Millport, Isle Of Cumbrae, KA28 0DG.
Feedback forms were provided at the events and completed online and by post.
