MEMBERS of the public are asked to give their preferences from a range of options to protect Stonehaven’s seafront from flooding.

A public engagement event relating to the Stonehaven Coastal Flood Study takes place at the Town Hall on Thursday, June 13 from 2pm – 8pm.

Aberdeenshire Council is working with JBA Consulting and Dougall Baillie Associates to evaluate coastal flood risk within Stonehaven Bay. 

Protection options have already been discussed with the local community, with a view to working out which ones might be appropriate along the waterfront.

Now the project team is looking for further input from the local community and other stakeholders on the shortlist of options being considered for different sections of the frontage. 

Please drop in any time between 2-8pm, when there will be representatives from both JBA Consulting and Aberdeenshire Council on hand to provide further information on the study and to talk through the potential options.

This second engagement event will be the final opportunity to provide comments before a preferred option is selected and presented to Scottish Government for appraisal.
