Fairbourne Facing Change - The Fairbourne Facing Change Community Action Group (FFC) was
established in direct response to the alarming way the West of Wales
Shoreline Management Plan 2(SMP2) was publicised on national and local
television. The BBC programme ‘Week in Week Out’ broadcast on Tuesday, 11th February 2014, did not present an accurate and balanced reporting of the situation. This, then followed with further inaccurate coverage culminating in unnecessary concerns for the community.
Over the past year the Group has been successful in raising these issues and gaining the support of all relevant Agencies, including Gwynedd Council, Welsh and Westminster Governments and Natural Resources Wales. FFC regularly update the village residents and other interested parties with Newsletters which can be seen on their website. A number of Drop in Meetings and Surgeries have also been held to address the concerns raised by the Community, Social fund raising events have been popular and above all FCC we instrumental in persuading the BBC to follow up their initial 'Week in Week' out program where it was stressed that Fairbourne village will be protected for a minimum of 40 years.
