Protecting your local community from climate change

Welcome to the official website of the Hirael Flood Prevention Scheme

Our goal is to invest in the community’s future by promoting flood safety, awareness, resilience and local wellbeing through the construction of new flood defences.

About this project

This project is a result of the Western Wales Flood Risk Management Plan. The plan has identified that in the Hirael area “there would be significant increase in flood risk with sea level rise”.

In response, YGC and AECOM have designed a flood alleviation scheme to protect the community up until 2100.
