Rhyl Central Coastal Defences: pre-application consultation

Hello. We're proposing to improve the coastal defences in the central Rhyl area.

Rhyl is a well-loved seaside town with many homes and businesses located along the seafront.

The central area of Rhyl (approximately between Splash Point to the east and the Drift Park to the west) is currently protected by sea defence structures. However, these are deteriorating and, if no work is carried out, they could fail within the next 10-15 years. Currently, 550 residential and 45 non-residential properties are at predicted to be at risk from flooding.

The purpose of the proposed scheme is to improve coastal flood defences in Central Rhyl to protect homes, businesses and the tourist economy from flooding events and coastal erosion well into the future.
