Hawick Flood Protection Scheme Moves Ahead

The construction of a flood protection scheme for Hawick is a step closer after Scottish Borders Councilors approved the final outline design of the project.

The decision taken at council meeting on Thursday, March 2, means that the publication of the scheme can now take place in April 2017.

Upon the publication, there will be a formal 28 days objection period, before councilors will be asked to give final approval for the scheme, which is expected to take place in September 2017.

Approval will decide the scheme’s program and if the project will be successfully funded by the Scottish Government.

The estimated overall costs of the scheme continue to be refined as the detailed design develops. The completion of the project is currently scheduled for March 2022.

It is expected that the Scottish Government will meet 80 per cent of the overall costs, and the council  will provide the remainder of the costs.
