This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 10/01/2022.


The Committee noted that whilst Natural Resources Wales have stated that they are not currently considering a flood scheme for the Towy in Carmarthen, it appears that there is little more the Committee can do on the issue. In light of this, the Committee agreed to close the petition and thank the petitioner.
