The project team are currently working on a series of activities to develop the scheme, consulting with the public and affected parties, obtaining the necessary statutory approvals and ultimately construction of a flood protection scheme to protect the residents and businesses in Hawick. These activities will happen over a number of years and the chart below shows a simplified version of the overall project programme.

As of October 2015 we are currently in Stage 3 which is the development of the outline design. This stage will develop the preferred scheme in more detail and also seek feedback and input from the public/ affected parties via various consultation exercises. This consultation is currently being planned and further details will be advised in the near future.

Please note that this programme is regularly reviewed and may change as the project develops.
