Plans to protect coast
PLANS have been unveiled to protect the coast of a village badly hit by floods a year ago.
Sea defences in Llanddulas were overwhelmed when a historically high tide mixed with storm conditions caused chaos across Wales.
In a planning application submitted by Conwy Council, the authority wants to “restore and reinforce the existing sea defences at Llanddulas Beach Car Park”.
Beach access will also be refurbished. A supporting flood risk assessment says: “The present frontage defences are vulnerable to wave impacts.”
Llanddulas resident Bill Neer saw the floods come within inches of his home last year. He said: “It was an issue before the floods last year, everyone here knew the defences were inadequate.
“Unfortunately it took three people’s homes to be flooded for them to do anything about it.”
The plans are set to go before Conwy Council’s planning committee in the New Year.
