Sewage dumping scheme refused.
Anwyl Construction applied for permission to discharge sewage in an emergency into the Aberkinsey Drain, near Dyserth Road, as part of its new residential development in the area.
But the application had been strongly opposed by residents, Chris Ruane MP for Vale of Clwyd and local county councillor Brian Blakeley.
Mr Ruane wrote to the Environment Agency asking for it to seriously consider not approving the application because of a history of flooding in the area.
"Last year, many residents in Rhyl East - to the north of the proposed development - were flooded and many believe that persistent flooding in their area is a direct result of the new houses which have already been built in Rhyl South East and the extra burden this has imposed on Rhyl's drainage system," he said.
"I am pleased to see that common sense has prevailed in this instance as the Rhyl Cut, an important water course for the town, also has an impact on Prestatyn."
