This protocol has been produced jointly by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and Conwy County Borough Council to inform those who are considering submitting planning applications in the area reliant on the current flood defences, about the current and future constraints for new development.
The purpose of this protocol is to inform potential applicants, interested parties and those determining planning applications of the controls on and constraints to development within the coastal flood risk area of the North Wales Coast, from Pensarn to Kinmel Bay with specific reference to tidal flood risk along this part of the coastline.
Any development may also require a Flood Defence Consent from the NRW. Please contact the Development and Flood Risk team (01248 484148) for further information.
This SPG has now been adopted as council policy with effect from July 2015. SPGs help to make sure certain policies and proposals are better understood and applied more effectively. They do not have the same status as policies in adopted development plans but we use them to help us make decisions on planning applications.
