Minister Commits £6 Million to St Asaph Flood Prevention

Funding of £3 million for progressing flood protection works in St Asaph during 2016/17 has been announced by Natural Resources Minister Carl Sargeant.

The Minister also confirmed that a further £3 million would be made available to the Coastal Risk Management Program – which will use innovative finance to fund £150m of capital projects for coastal adaptation and resilience to climate change.

In St Asaph, since the flood event in 2012 we have been working with NRW as the flood risk management authority responsible for the River Elwy, to determine what measures are necessary to address flood risk,” said Sargeant.

This scheme will make a huge difference to the lives of residents in St Asaph who face the threat of having their homes and businesses flooded during bad weather.”

The £6 million investment, announced in the budget proposals for 2016-17 earlier this week, supports implementation of the Welsh Government’s core investment priorities set out in the Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan.

The scheme in St Asaph, when completed, will reduce risk along the River Elwy in the heart of the city, benefiting those residents who suffered severe flooding in 2012 and a further near-miss earlier this winter.
