The risks of coastal flooding and erosion are increasing with the impact of climate change which means that sea levels are rising and more intense storms occur more often. Gwynedd has the largest coastline in Wales and due to the nature of our landscape a high percentage of our communities, and the infrastructure that serves them, is on the coast.
We will collaborate with other agencies, in order to prioritise our coast based on risk, and form an action plan to get to grips with the risks where this is possible.
There is also a risk of inland flooding when water accumulates and rivers overflow. We will draw up catchment area plans in order to help avoid/respond to existing and increasing future threats.
