St Asaph Flood Protection Scheme Opens

The Minister for Environment, Hannah Blythyn

The Minister for Environment, Hannah Blythyn, has delivered a major boost to residents and businesses of St Asaph after officially opening a £6m flood alleviation scheme in the city.

The new flood scheme will reduce the risk of flooding from the River Elwy to 293 homes and 121 businesses, Welsh Government said in its release.

After officially opening the new scheme and unveiling a plaque, Blythyn said: “We all remember the serious flooding here in 2012, so this is an important scheme for St Asaph. Those events remind us of the real threat we face from flooding, which is likely to increase as our climate changes.”

“I would like to thank Natural Resources Wales and their contractors for delivering this important scheme which is reducing the flood risk to 414 properties, including 293 homes. 

“The scheme has been supported with £6 million from the Welsh Government. Earlier this year I also announced a £56m program to strengthen Wales’ flood and coastal defenses, helping build resilience in communities across Wales which face similar risks.”

The project will protect St Asaph from an event equivalent to the floods in 2012.
