An extra £10m is to be spent on flood defences following the devastating rains which caused widespread flooding in mid Wales last summer a lot of which was around and about the Aberystwyth area. The monies are to be spent in 2013-15, but will the money spent in the Aberystwyth area be enough following the devastation to local homes and businesses?
Environment Minister John Griffiths said:
"We were already investing over £140m in flood and coastal erosion risk management over the life of this assembly to reduce risk for over 7,000 properties. Despite severe reductions in its capital budget, the Welsh government was spending an extra £10m on flood and coastal risk management over 2013/14 to 2014/15, taking investment to more than£150m."
What are your memories of the flooding in June 2012?
