Helensburgh Coastal Flood Study

Helensburgh Coastal Flood Study

Thank you for your feedback on the proposed options to reduce coastal flood risk along the frontages at Helensburgh, Craigendoran and Rhu. The preferred options will be adopted into the study which will be submitted for approval by the Council and sent for consideration by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA).
 

Consultation background

JBA Consulting were commissioned by Argyll and Bute Council to undertake a coastal Flood Protection Study (FPS) to consider options to reduce coastal flood risk along the frontages at Helensburgh, Craigendoran and Rhu.

The study has identified five areas that could possibly benefit from flood protection works, these lie between the Royal Northern Yacht Club at Rhu and Craigendoran.

For each of these areas a short list of three possible solutions has been developed. These short listed items were presented at a public event held at Helensburgh Civic Centre  on Tuesday 30 April 2019.

Further to the April consultation, an appraisal process took place to determine the preferred option for each section of frontage. The preferred options were presented at a public event held at the Helensburgh and Civic Centre on Tuesday 25 June 2019

We are now looking for public comments on the preferred options prior to the study being submitted for council approval and sent to SEPA by late summer 2019. 

The process now moves on to identifying the preferred option for each area. It is hoped to have this completed for the beginning of June. An event will be held at that time to allow public comment, prior to the options being approved by the Council and submitted for consideration by SEPA.
