Natural Resources Wales (NRW) will be holding a public drop in session on Friday 8 March to discuss options on reducing the flood risk to over 200 properties in Ammanford.

The session will run from 2 – 8pm at the Amman Civic Hall, Margaret Street, SA18 2NP and will give residents an opportunity to voice their opinions on how to reduce the risk of flooding for homes and businesses in the area.

NRW, supported by JBA Consulting have been investigating the level of flood risk along the River Loughor, Marlas and Lash, as well as carrying out surveys to narrow down options for a scheme.

These options will be presented at the drop-in session along with the impacts and benefits each one will have on the community.

Simone Eade, Flood Incident Management Senior Advisor for NRW, said:

“Reducing risk to areas vulnerable to flooding is a responsibility we take very seriously, and part of this work is investing in flood management schemes for at risk communities.

“We want to reduce flood risk to people’s homes and businesses and we want to do this by working with the community and taking local opinions on board.

“We’re looking forward to talking to the residents of Ammanford and to moving forward with a project that works for us all.”
