Consider the erection of a wall to prevent flooding in Llangefni

Building a wall to protect the town of Llangefni from future flooding will be discussed by the Anglesey Council executive committee on Monday.

A year ago the Afon Cefni flooded during heavy rain and parts of the town were under foot of water, with houses and businesses being damaged.

A document that will be presented to the council on Monday stating that the flooding has affected 27 businesses and six houses.

Glandŵr Popty is still closed due to the damage.

‘Need to act urgently’

In order to prevent similar flooding occurring again an application will be submitted to the council to transfer £ 85,000 to the Highways Department to raise a wall behind Glandŵr in Llangefni.

Following the flood, the local Assembly Member, Rhun ap Iorwerth, organized special discussion sessions and it became clear during the sessions that local residents wanted something to be done before winter 2018.

As a result, the Wildlife Wales organized the river to clean up and it is also intended to plan to avoid flooding, but it is fears that it will be years before the plan comes into force.

At last November last year one councilor called for the construction of a new road between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris as the A545 road closed for a week following a landslide that occurred during a major flood.

According to Alwyn Rowlands, a member of Beaumaris Town Council, a new way on a new route is the only solution in the long term.
