“We look forward to welcoming the local community along to this event where they will be able to view detailed project plans, and speak to representatives from Scottish Water and its delivery partner George Leslie Ltd.”

Following significant consultation with local residents and community groups throughout 2021, Scottish Water listened to concerns and made substantial changes to the original plans.

Work is due to begin on site at the beginning of the school summer holidays.
