LOCAL AM WELCOMES BRITTON FERRY FLOOD ALLEVIATION SCHEME

Aberavon AM, David Rees, has welcomed the announcement that Dŵr Cymru will be investing £4.3 million in a programme to tackle flooding in Britton Ferry. The company plans to carry out an extensive programme of work on the waste water network, which will help reduce the risk of flooding to homes in that area.

David Rees AM said:
‘Dŵr Cymru have thoroughly investigated the cause of flooding and their team of engineers have designed a bespoke project to help alleviate the risk of flooding. Around 180 homes in the area are known to be affected with some experiencing incidents of internal and external flooding during storm weather conditions so this is great news.’

Dŵr Cymru are planning to start work in February 2012 and the whole project will take around 10 months to complete. To give members of the local community an opportunity to find out more about the work they are planning, they will be holding an information day even early in the New Year. This will take place on Thursday 12th January, 12pm- 8pm at Britton Ferry Town Council Offices, Shelone Road.
