bARMOUTH nORTH pROMENADE flood defence scheme

Welcome to the official webiste of the Barmouth flood defence scheme. Here you can keep up to date with the latest project updates, and look at what the scheme is proposing. The project is a result of the Western Wales Flood Risk Management Plan which has identified that in the Barmouth area “there would be significant increase in flood risk with sea level rise”. In response, YGC and ARUP are designing a flood alleviation scheme to protect the community up until 2070. Please click on the link below to find out more about the project…
