The only works that have been removed from the list of the 42 formal flood protection schemes or engineering works are those to the Greenock - Coves Burn which were to be taken forward by Inverclyde Council. The number of properties that were expected to be protected is not held by the Scottish Government, the removal was because the required work was carried out by Scottish Water, the initial forecast cost was £0.4m and the amount spent was £0.025m.
