Stonehaven beach sweep


In response to the significant flood events in Stonehaven last weekend, our project team worked closely with the emergency services, Aberdeenshire Council’s flood team and volunteer flood wardens.

We are also conducting an ongoing site-wide clean-up operation to the affected areas.

Community engagement is important to us, and a beach sweep has been held with over 50 residents, including local groups Paws on Plastic, Stonehaven Horizon Group and Councillor Sarah Dickinson, in attendance.

One resident commented, “I would like to say a big thank you to teams at both McLaughlin & Harvey and Aberdeenshire Council following the most recent ‘near miss’ flooding event we had on Saturday. The guys at McLaughlin & Harvey worked the whole day Friday and Saturday preparing their site for the forecast heavy rain, and when they realised that would not be enough they were out the whole night adjusting and shoring up defences where it was needed.”

We are thankful for the continued cooperation and support of all stakeholders during the construction works for the benefit of the Stonehaven Community. We are very glad that everyone was kept safe and we could help.
