Flood defence boosted by £1m
A MILLION pounds will be spent on the replacement of flood defence walls in Penclawdd.
It is said the Welsh Government investment will help protect 127 homes and 15 businesses.
Minister for Natural Resources Alun Davies has announced details of how an additional £20 million will be spent on vital flood and coastal defence improvements across Wales.
Money will also be spent in Newport, Cardiff, Dolgellau and along the Severn Estuary.
The Minister said: "Last year was one of the wettest on record and resulted in many homes and businesses in mid and north Wales being badly affected by flooding.
"While we cannot stop or fully prevent flooding, we are doing all we can to manage the risks and reduce the consequences.
"This additional funding will help to protect nearly over 2,000 Welsh homes and businesses that are vulnerable to flood risk."
