Welsh Government Invests in Little Haven Flood Protection

The Welsh Government is making nearly three quarters of a million pounds available to help reduce the risk of flooding to homes and businesses in Little Haven.

The funding, announced yesterday by the Welsh Government, will contribute 85% towards the cost of construction of the flood alleviation scheme, a grant value of £729,348 towards the total cost of £858,057.

The Little Haven flood alleviation scheme will include:

  • placing shingle in front of the existing defenses to alleviate any overtopping;
  • installing a short length of box culvert to extend the outfall down the beach beyond the shingle bank;
  • raising the current sea defenses;
  • replacing lost shingle, restoring the profile of the beach.

The Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, said: “I am pleased to confirm the Welsh Government will provide nearly three quarters of a million pounds of funding to help protect Little Haven from flooding. This will provide reassurance to all those who live and work in, or visit this popular village.”

“This financial year we are committed to investing almost £55 million in flood risk management to reduce risk to homes and businesses across Wales and we are delivering on our promise.”

Pembrokeshire County Council is providing the remaining 15 per cent of the funding.
