Roath Brook flood scheme - news!


The Penylan Liberal Democrat Focus Team is alerting residents to a recent planning application connected to the Roath Brook flood management scheme.

A planning application was submitted this month to Cardiff Council by Natural Resources Wales for the construction of a strategic flood risk management scheme between Penylan Road and Morrison’s on Newport Road to reduce the frequency of flooding in Roath from the Roath Brook. 

Eluned Parrott, Assembly Member for South Wales Central, said: “The works include the construction of raised flood defence walls and embankments, replacement and construction of new highway bridges and footbridges and tree clearance works and landscaping.

Penylan’s Lib Dem councillors have worked hard to ensure that residents have been involved throughout the initial consultation process leading up to this application – indeed, original proposals have been amended in response to the concerns of local residents – and now it[‘s time for residents to have their say.

Full details of the application can be viewed at County Hall during normal working hours, or can be viewed online at http://planning.cardiff.gov.uk/online-applications/ - just enter the reference 15/02501/MJR in the search request. Comments can be made online, sent by e-mail to developmentcontrol@cardiff.gov.uk or sent in writing to Planning Department, Room 201, County Hall, Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff, CF10 4UW. Please quote the reference number 15/02501/MJR when you write; the deadline for submitting comments is Thursday 19th November 2015.

Cllr. Joe Boyle added: “Eluned and I would be interested to know your views on this application, so be sure to send us a copy of any comments. Whilst we are both broadly in favour of the scheme, we have worked hard to ensure that all views are taken on board. It's vital that any work respects the architectural and environmental beauty of this part of Penylan. The insight of residents is the best way to guarantee that this happens.
