DENBIGHSHIRE  Council is calling on the public to assist in an action plan to cope with the unprecedented flooding in the area.

Under the Flood and Water Management Act, the council have drafted a strategy to show how it will provide a coordinated, resourced and comprehensive approach to how flood risk is managed for any bad weather that may affect the region in the coming months.

They have asked that members of the public provide advice and suggestions to the draft, and the consultation will run until April 4.

Cllr David Smith, cabinet lead member for Environment, said: "Unfortunately, we in Denbighshire have experienced unprecedented weather events that have led to significant flooding in communities across the County in the last 18 months.

"I have seen first hand the devastation this has caused to many households and that is why it is important that we take advantage of the opportunity to assess where flooding is possible and have a strategy in place to manage those risks as much as possible, so I would urge people to get involved and have their say."

The draft strategy and supporting documents can be found on and hard copies of the strategy are available at libraries in Rhyl, Rhuddlan, Prestatyn and St Asaph.
