Plans to pro­tect coast

North Wales Weekly News - - WRITTEN BY YOU -

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.
