Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme

On 10 November 2020 the Cabinet reached the final decision and confirmed the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme without modification, agreed the indicative project timescale and approved the commencement of the final design of the scheme.

The Scheme became operational on 13 January 2021 and the detailed design development started. North Ayrshire Council is developing the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme with close community involvement.


Between September and October 2021 two consultations were carried out in parallel, the Community Consultation and the Marine Licence Pre-application Consultation.

Both consultations were very positive, with good attendance considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. We would like to thank you for your participation and continue engagement. The Consultation Summary (PDF, 2.3mb) is available to view.

The Millport Harbour Revision Order

North Ayrshire Council has applied to the Scottish Ministers for a Harbour Revision Order under section 14 of the Harbours Act 1964. The Order will empower the Council to construct and maintain works in Millport Harbour and to mark and regulate a new navigation channel, all as required to support the Millport Coastal Flood Protection Scheme.

More information can be found within the below documents:

Instructions for any person wishing to make an objection or representation to the Scottish Ministers concerning the application can be found in the Notice.

Benches and Memorial Plaques 

North Ayrshire Council surveyed the benches and identified 146 memorial plaques along the promenade.

The Council will carry out a separate consultation on the future of the memorial plaques.

There will be no changes to the promenade and benches in 2021. (Presently the proposed construction start is Summer 2022.) We will not make any changes without carrying out prior consultation with the affected families.
