Announcement of intention not to prepare an environmental statement - (Regulation 12B of the Environmental Impact Assessment (Land drainage improvement works) (Amendment) Regulations) 2017/585

Natural Resources Wales gives notice that it proposes to carry out improvement works to the Pont Robin Tidal Sluice on the Pont Robin Cut in Rhuddlan (NGR SJ 01612 78246). The proposed improvement works will involve the following: replacing the outfall flap with a new side-hung tidal door, removing the existing unsafe platforms and screens to allow river debris to pass through, installing a new contingency penstock, installing river level telemetry, installing small cameras pointing at the watercourse.

Natural Resources Wales considers that the improvement works are not likely to have significant effects on the environment and does not intend to prepare an environmental statement in respect of them. Although an environmental statement is not proposed, the scheme design has considered environmental factors associated with the site and incorporated environmental improvements where feasible. The scheme design can viewed from the Natural Resources Wales’ Rhuddan Depot, Abergele Road, Rhuddlan, Rhyl LL18 5UE during the hours of 10:00rs – 16:00 Monday to Thursday. 

Any person wishing to make representations in relation to the likely environmental effects of the proposed improvement works should do so, in writing, to the address specified below, within 30 days of the date of publication of this notice.
