Senedd Member For South East Wales, Laura Anne Jones, has called on the Environment Minister to help ensure flood prevention measures are taken as a matter of urgency to prevent flooding in Skenfrith.
Speaking in the Welsh Parliament during Environment Questions, Laura Anne Jones said:
“I recently visited Skenfrith in Monmouthshire with the local MP David Davies to see first-hand the devastating effects that flooding has had on their village.”
“Last winter's flooding had a devastating impact on so many local residents, and worry and anxiety about a repeat of that this winter is giving many residents, obviously, sleepless nights and impacting on their mental health.”
“Could I please ask you, Minister, given that we're now in autumn, will you please encourage National Resources Wales to speed up their report on Skenfrith and the costs and benefits of schemes there, as people's safety, homes and livelihoods are at risk”
