Trefriw Old Recreation Ground and the New Recreation Field
7 March 2013
As many people will know, since the Conwy Valley Flood Alleviation Scheme was completed, Trefriw Recreation Field floods several times a year and having been compacted during the works, suffers from poor drainage. The “New Recreation Field”, which was supposed to restore Trefriw’s facilities, is equally badly drained. Trefriw Community Council has been in lengthy and difficult negotiations with Environment Agency Wales(EAW) to have the fields restored to a condition where they are fit for use as playing fields.
The council has recently received a final offer from Environment Agency Wales and wants your opinion on it. There will be an Extraordinary meeting of the Council at 7.00pm on 12th March 2013 in the Village Hall. Please come and tell us what you think. You can see the Agenda for the meeting and some relevant figures here. The Minutes of the meeting can be read by following this link.
