We worked with JBA on this flood protection scheme for a number of months, from concept through to public consultation and amendments.
The scheme will provide protection to approximately 300 properties currently believed to be at risk of flooding from the sea/River Lochy. Of these 300 properties, 23 are commercial or public buildings which includes the current Caol Primary School, Kilmallie Free Church and the police station.
The aims of the scheme are to provide robust flood protection and promote the most technically sound, economically viable and environmentally sustainable option which mitigates against the major sources of flood risk to Caol & Lochyside; notably extreme sea levels, tidal surge events, wave overtopping and high river levels from the River Lochy, as well as any combination of the above.
