The 3D animations below show what the scheme may look like for the options being considered. At this stage these are purely illustrative of the type of work to be carried out in each area. As the design develops more detail will become available on matters such as the finish and appearance of flood defence walls e.g. are they clad in brick or stone or will they be plain or patterned concrete.
Following the consultation events a report was compiled to summarise the events and record the views of those who completed the feedback questionnaire and/ or provided comments. The report can be accessed by clicking on the icon below:
