Your Town. Your Choice.
Join us in asking East Lothian Council to Pause The Musselburgh Flood Prevention Scheme.
Pause The Flood Scheme are a group of local residents who are concerned about the proposed flood prevention plans and seek an alternative nature-based solution.
We accept that a flood prevention scheme is necessary … but … the scheme that the council is proposing is unsightly, outdated, unfriendly to the environment and crucially, far exceeds the needs for our town.
The Musselburgh Pause the Flood Scheme group aims to:
- Pause the flood scheme
- Explore nature-based solutions
- Protect our town for future generations
We’ve worked with geoscience experts who have told us that there’s still time to explore other options. This is an opportunity for Musselburgh to become a leading example of a town using nature-based solutions to protect its residents from future flooding.
All funds from this campaign will be used to produce printed flyers, posters etc in order to spread the word to residents of the town, help them understand what is planned and enable them to have their say.
Update: Thank you to all who have donated. The first run of 5000 leaflets are printed and look great. We've increased our target for this campaign to cover further print runs.
