St Asaph Long Term Flood Plans Presented

Long-term plans to reduce flood risk for people in St Asaph are to be unveiled at a public drop-in session in the city.

The proposals, drawn up by Natural Resources Wales (NRW), will see the city’s flood defenses enhanced, but will also involve a number of innovative projects upstream to manage flood risk naturally.

NRW is assessing the catchments of both the River Elwy and River Clwyd to find suitable options and is working with the Welsh Government, landowners, local authorities and Farming Unions to get these projects underway.

As well as reducing flood risk, it is hoped that the work will provide wider benefits to nearby communities and the local environment.

People can see the proposals for NRW’s preferred option for a scheme, and give feedback on Wednesday 10 December at the Oriel Hotel in St Asaph between 2pm and 7pm.

Following the drop-in session NRW will approach the Welsh Government for funding in spring next year.

Once it has the go ahead, it will begin detailed planning and design, before starting work on the scheme in spring 2016.

In the meantime, short-term measures to reduce flood risk remain in place on the River Elwy.
