The Beautiful Welsh Coastline

          We all love and appreciate the beautiful, varied and spectacular Pembrokeshire coastline. This has been changing and altering throughout the ages. This change will continue as a result of rising sea levels. The towns and villages of Wales are mostly situated on the coast and therefore will be exposed to this unstoppable development.

          Pembrokeshire South East Energy Group will kick off their Autumn programme on the 16th September with an extremely interesting talk on some of the changes that will happen to the Welsh Coastline as a result of these rising sea levels.

          Richard Ellis, the National Trust Head Warden for Pembrokeshire, will be explaining the how some areas of coastline will have to be allowed to be claimed by the sea and the resulting changes to some low-lying villages, roads and other amenities.

          This talk coincides with the publication of a Consultation Paper Lavernock Point to St Ann's Head produced by Halcrow on behalf of a number of local authorities. There will also be a public exhibition at the De Valance Hall on Wednesday 15th September 2010 (12 noon to 8.pm). The draft SMP2 will be available in local libraries and council offices for people to see for themselves the proposed time-scales for areas that can be protected or will have to left to the sea.

          As PSEEG's area extends from Amroth to Manorbier and so will be affected by these changes we are pleased to be able to give any member of the public the opportunity to come along to the meeting on the 16th September at the Regency Hall, Saundersfoot at 7.00pm to hear some of the options and choices currently under review from an expert.
