The proposed designs for the Brechin flood prevention scheme has gone on display at Brechin library today (June 17).

The exhibition runs until Friday, July 11, offering members of the community the opportunity to see what is being proposed and give their comments on the design.

The council’s communities vice convener, councillor Jeanette Gaul, invited people to go along to the exhibition commenting: “This is a much anticipated scheme that will have a very positive impact on the town, particularly in River Street and The Inch.

“The display gives everyone the chance to see what it will look like on the ground and while this isn’t a formal consultation about the scheme, there is the opportunity to give comments about the proposals.

“The designs on display show how the completed scheme will not only do the job in terms of preventing future flooding incidents, but also how it will enhance that public space with a new playpark and community garden, and we’re keen to work with local residents on the development of these community facilities.

“The council looks forward to hearing local people’s views on the designs and seeing the flood prevention scheme getting started in the coming months.”
