Village to be decommissioned

Gwynedd council’s plans would see the village of 500 homes go through ‘managed realignment’ before being ‘decommissioned’ after the sea defences are abandoned in 40 years.

Locals say the plan has made Fairbourne the “village of the damned” with falling house prices and businesses struggling for long-term investment.

They take issue with the assumption guiding the plan – that sea levels will rise by more than a metre in the next century,

Campaigner Pete Cole told the Daily Mail the council was relying on an “aggressive model” not used on other stretches of the coastline.
