- Organisation core business: Local Authority
- What will the project do?: Pendine Flood and Coastal Defence Works: Key defence enhancements are required to address the vulnerability of the existing coastal infrastructure in Pendine. The interface between the east end of Pendine promenade and the adjacent eroding land requires work to prevent run round erosion that would threaten the Museum of Speed and assets along the adjacent shoreline and throughout the hinterland. The defence performs an essential coastal protection and flood defence function and also contributes to one of the area's main key economic drivers in terms of visitor numbers. The scheme will include the construction of minor promontories that will encourage natural sandy embayments and links with the adjacent natural feature of Dolwen Point which in turn links into both Gilman and Ragwen Point. The works will be confined to the upper part of the intertidal zone for which there is a sound engineering and coastal process rationale. The extent of the shoreline for the proposed scheme is approximately 400m. The scheme will link the commercial sector/hub of the village with a car parking and amenity area. The scheme will help promote the only seafront village in Carmarthenshire as a regional natural tourism attraction.
