April 25, 2013 3:13 PM

Welcoming the news that the Welsh Government have rejected Western Power Distribution's appeal to build on Llanishen Reservoir, Jenny Willott MP, Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament for Cardiff Central said:

"Together with locals and the Reservoir Action Group, we have been fighting plans by Western Power since 2002 to protect the reservoir and the flora and fauna specific to the site, to ensure its use for future generations."

"Had they won, it would have been a disaster for the local area. I hope that Western Power finally realise that their development plans are not needed nor wanted in Cardiff."

"I want to thank everybody who has worked on and fought hard for this campaign. Liberal Democrats believe it is important that the concerns of locals are taken seriously in order to build a fairer society."
