This extract from the report caught my eye:-

"It suggests various options to improve sea defences on Llandudno’s north shore including constructing shore connected control structures such as breakwaters and timber groynes or ‘beach nourishment’.

The latter option would please campaigners who have fought for the rocks to be replaced by sand on the North Shore.

The option would attract more people to the resort’s front but there are concerns wind blown sand could cause problems.That could affect nearby properties and roads and raising the height of the wall may impact visibility of the sea and beach."

Isn't that exactly what has happened on the West Shore?    Perhaps the powers that be should be more careful in future and realise by their mistake in 1993 on the West Shore that the cheapest option is not always the best option

"The Friends of West Shore latest project is to hand transplant Marram grass from the main dunes to the area between the boating lake and the pumping station, in order to "catch" sand and to prevent build up at the Abbey rd. end of West Shore, the county's Ecologist is very positive about the scheme, working parties will begin trialing certain areas this autumn, and if successful the group would like to expand the project."

I caught the tale end of a piece on Counrtyfile,...........MacRebur® LTD recycling plastics, combined with tarmac for use on roads the main points being they can use many types of plastic, also reuse what is already in landfill, and the end result is a more durable road surface, it is in the early stages of development,.......we need thinking like this.

I received a newsletter this week, from local councillors , one of the items " Where does our plastic go"....  "all local plastics are recycled in the UK, nothing sent abroad"  :) ....   "the plastic waste is sorted at the waste depot in Abergele, ......and sent to various outlets including a firm in Scotland (see above quote and link ) who use it in road construction."

What worries me is that the talk is still of CCBC or its successor having to find 25% of the cost. Stopping coastal towns flooding should be a national priority. It is in London...

Dramatic images of what's planned for the Ferodo and Plas Brereton sites have been released as the formal pre-application consultation gets underway.

Maybrook Investments, which owns Ferodo, had completed the deal to take on derelict mansions Plas Brereton and Plas Tŷ Coch.

The developer announced that they wanted to build a holiday village and water park on the site and were in discussions with Landal Greenparks, one of Europe’s leading park operators.           You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Images reveal how rising sea levels could see Llandudno flooded
Sea levels are expected to rise due to climate change.

"In a report commissioned by Conwy County Council, coastal engineers AECOM have produced stark maps showing the potential scale and frequency of flooding in the early 22nd century - compared to now.

The report warns: “The present day risk is such that small areas of Llandudno have a one in 1,000 chance of flooding in any one year, however in 2117 there will be a one in 30 chance of widespread flooding in any one year.“It is clear something will need to change to provide continued flood protection to the town of Llandudno.”
