Flood protection scheme delayed

A quick update on the Millport coastal flood protection scheme

At a meeting with North Ayrshire Council on 12 October 2022, it was confirmed that the process for selecting a contractor to build the flood protection scheme is ongoing. It had been expected that a contractor would be appointed in August, but complications relating to the current economic situation have resulted in delays.

However, North Ayrshire Council say that a contractor will be appointed “imminently”. They believe that this means construction should begin in February 2023 and that the flood defences will be completed in the summer of 2024.

Further updates will be posted here when any information is released by North Ayrshire Council.
