A drop-in session is set to take place next week – Wednesday, 27 March, between 1pm and 8pm – to give the public a chance to see how the Hawick Flood Protection Scheme will look, Scottish Borders Council said in its latest release. 

Information will be available on how the design has been finalized through the Community Vision Working Group’s involvement,” the council said.

“Residents will also have the opportunity to speak to flood scheme team members and our officers on topics including the community timber project and environmental health.”

According to the announcement, members of Sustrans Scotland will be available to discuss the major investment in a sustainable travel network which it is delivering in partnership with the flood program.

The Hawick Flood Protection Scheme will deliver protection from a 1 in 75 flood event to over 900 residential and commercial properties at risk along the River Teviot and Slitrig Water.

The project will also deliver multiple benefits to the town of Hawick, maximizing the cultural, heritage, educational, environmental, energy and health opportunities in partnership with the community and external organizations, the council said.
