Managing flooding in Pwllheli

Closes 31 Oct 2025

Opened 9 Aug 2022

Overview

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is exploring options to more effectively manage the long-term flood risk to Pwllheli and surrounding communities.

We are keen to explain about the long term flood risk to the community and how this project provides an opportunity to address these risks.

Parts of Pwllheli are at risk of flooding from rivers and the sea. It is anticipated future flood risks, particularly from the coast, could be significant. As the climate changes, we will face more frequent storms, as well as rising sea levels.

This will put increased pressure on the flood defences and could impact how they perform. Maintaining today’s level of flood protection for people and homes is a challenge.

The project builds on previous projects and studies and will involve assessing a range of long-term options to reduce the risk of river and sea flooding to the local community.

We will take into account a range of factors for the options we consider such as sustainability, viability, and affordability. 

We will be providing regular project updates on the webpage as well as an opportunity to feedback online if you haven’t been able to attend an event.

There may be opportunities to regenerate the existing flood defence and associated public space, providing wider benefits for the local community. We want to work together to find solutions that can offer a sustainable future for Pwllheli.

We will be providing regular project updates as well as an opportunity to feedback online.
