Why are we consulting

The communities of Llandysul, Pont-Tyweli and Llanybydder have been subject to a number of devastating flood events, including Storm Callum in 2018 when numerous residential and commercial properties were impacted, and roads closed. Following this significant event, Carmarthenshire County Council, Ceredigion County Council and Natural Resources Wales have been working together to better understand the processes of flooding and assess different flood risk reduction options. A number of options have been identified and initial assessment carried out. A virtual consultation event is now planned to canvass community opinion and gather feedback on identification of the most beneficial flood risk management options. This immersive event will summarise the work undertaken to date and present the list of options under consideration. These mitigation measures range from Natural Flood Management, construction of embankments and control structures to Property Level Protection and temporary/demountable defences. This bilingual event will allow stakeholders to review the options and provide feedback and comments, which will feed into the next stage of the work.
