Llandudno Coastal Flood Defences – Public Drop-In Event
Members of the public can view future plans for Llandudno’s beaches at an information event this month.
Llandudno Coastal Forum, working with Conwy County Borough Council and its consultants, have organised the public drop-in session at the Victoria Centre in Llandudno for residents and visitors to view the shortlisted options for managing Llandudno’s beaches.
The event will take place on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th July between 10am and 4pm.
Officers from Conwy’s Environment, Roads and Facilities service, consultants AECOM and members of the Llandudno Coastal Forum will be available to answer questions about the options for protecting the coastal defences at North Shore and West Shore. Residents can also find out where the funding will come from, and what happens next.
Cllr Greg Robbins, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for the Environment and Transportation and a founder member of the Coastal Forum, said: “We know that with the projected rise in sea levels over the next 50 years, we need to be prepared. These shortlisted options are the result of the Council working closely with the Coastal Forum over the last five years. I would encourage all local residents or visitors to join us at the drop-in event to find out more.”
Llandudno Coastal Forum was established in 2014 by local residents and businesses to provide an alternative voice for the future development of the North and West Shore beaches in the town. The Forum is working with Conwy County Borough Council to provide beaches that are fit for purpose, provide appropriate flood and coastal erosion management, improve the natural environment and amenity, acknowledge the cultural heritage, and can create commercial opportunities for the town.
Nigel Treacy, Chairman of The Coastal Forum said: “The forum has worked tirelessly alongside Conwy County and environmental consultants in developing coastal defence and amenity solutions. This is a great opportunity for those who work, live and visit Llandudno to come and see the options that will shape the future plans for Llandudno’s shorelines.”
