East Rhyl Public Consultation Event

Few people in the Denbighshire seaside town of Rhyl will have forgotten the devastation caused by the storms of December 2013, when some 120 properties were flooded from Splash Point eastwards to Frydd Beach at Rhyl Golf Club. Mercifully and thanks to the selfless efforts of our emergency services, lives weren't lost, but the tragedy of the event still bore a heavy cost. Many homes were also flooded in February 1990 and, with the impacts of climate change increasing storminess and accelerating sea level rise, the risk of further flooding is set to increase.

The need for a coastal protection scheme at East Rhyl is beyond doubt and, following extensive analysis and evaluation of options, Denbighshire County Council is holding a drop-in day on 11th October 2018 from 10am to 8pm at the Elwy Room, Rhyl Community Fire Station, LL18 3PL. Members of the community and others interested will be welcome to see and provide comment and feedback on the work undertaken to date and the solution offered.

A further drop-in session at the Community Fire Station is also planned for 8th November 2018, where the finalised detailed designs and consenting processes will be presented and will offer a further chance for comment.

The East Rhyl Coastal Defence Scheme will reduce the risk of coastal flooding in the Garford Road area of East Rhyl.

The East Rhyl Coastal Defence Scheme is led by Denbighshire County Council, with support from the Welsh Government. Balfour Beatty has been appointed as the main contractor to deliver the Coastal Defence Scheme, and is currently working with Denbighshire County Council, and the Environmental and Engineering Consultancy JBA Consulting through early design and development works.

The project will involve the construction of a rock revetment structure immediately in front of the existing sea wall, with improvements to the existing wall over a length of around four hundred metres, from Splash Point heading East.

The East Rhyl Project will expand upon the recently completed flood storage works completed by Denbighshire County Council since the coastal flood event in 2013.
