Residents had to to leave their properties amid fears for safety
Aberdeenshire councillors are to be asked to approve plans for a £3m scheme to protect homes from landslips at Bervie Braes in Stonehaven.
Residents were asked to leave their properties in February amid fears for safety.
A report seeks approval to progress with a slope remediation scheme, following the Scottish government's announcement of the funding package.
Planned work includes soil nailing of the slope below the public road.
More than 60 households had to be evacuated after heavy rainfall affected the area.
The Scottish government is meeting £2m of the cost, with the remainder being funded by Aberdeenshire Council.
Council leader, Anne Robertson, said: "I fully appreciate the need for action to stabilise the Braes and the concerns of residents.
"There is a great deal of work to do before we will be in a position to begin work on site but we are totally committed to moving forward as quickly as possible.
"In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the condition of the Braes and provide updates to residents."
Stonehaven Community Council earlier welcomed news of the funding.
