Public Meeting Set on Hawick Flood Protection Scheme

Hawick Flood Protection Scheme’s project team will host a public meeting this month to discuss the scheme, the Scottish Borders Council said in its latest release. 

The project team will also hold site walks for the public on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 August, at 6.30pm each night.

The site walk on 29 August will provide a tour of Lawson Bridge to Victoria Bridge stretch of the river, while the 30 August walk will tour the river from Mart Street Bridge to Mansfield Bridge.

These evenings are intended to allow the project team to clarify the proposed Scheme to the public and to gain further insight into the views of the Hawick people about the project, which would protect over 900 properties against a 1 in 75 year flood event.

Councillor Gordon Edgar, our Executive Member for Roads and Infrastructure, said: “The Hawick Flood Protection Scheme is a complex project and as a result we expected a number of objections to be received.

“We would encourage members of the community to come to the public meeting and site tours to find out more information on the project.

“This is such an important project for Hawick and the Council is committed to carrying out this process in a proper but timely manner.”

The meeting on Thursday 31 August at 7pm in Hawick Town Hall is open to all and will see the project team provide an update and host a question and answer session.
