An additional £10 million is to be spent on improving flood and coastal defences in Wales' most at risk communities.

Natural Resources Minister Alun Davies says a £76.5million funding package - for housing, schools and transport, as well as flood protection - will support around 1,400 jobs and boost economic growth

The extra £10million will help fund flood and coastal risk management schemes across Wales, including:

  • £5m to help protect over 215 homes and businesses in the Colwyn Bay community, as well as the A55 and North Wales mainline railway

  • £2m to extend work on the proposed flood risk management scheme for Mold

  • £1m for a further phase of work to reduce the risk of coastal erosion and flooding in Borth
