DETAILS of the proposed flood protection scheme for a Dundee community are set to go on display.

Dundee City Council’s plans to reduce the impact of any future flooding in Broughty Ferry have been the subject of detailed design and consideration by more than 200 residents and other interested parties since 2016.

Mark Flynn depute convener of the council’s city development committee said: “Our engineers have been working on refining the details of the project, trying to take on board comments and feedback from the people of the Ferry that we received throughout the process.

“This 28 days is another chance for interested parties to comment on the detailed scheme.

“Every effort has been made to ensure that while we put in measures to protect people and property in that part of The Ferry the scheme is also attractive and in keeping with the buildings and streetscape around it.”

The scheme is designed to reduce the risk of flooding to residential, open space, community and businesses in the Ferry by putting in measures along Douglas Terrace, James Place, Fisher Street and Beach Crescent.

Anyone who wants to object to the scheme can do so in writing to the Head of Democratic and Legal Services, Dundee City Council, 21 City Square, Dundee with their name and address and reasons for the objection.

Full details of the proposals can be seen for free during normal office hours at the reception of Dundee House, 50 Lindsay Street or Broughty Ferry Library in Queen Street.
