Roath Flood Risk Management Scheme

Thanks to Tim Hopkins from Natural Resources Wales for this guest post about the Roath Flood Risk Management Scheme, and how you can stay informed about its progress.

‘We are very keen for residents, park users and local businesses to attend the next public drop-in session on the 8th September 2014 at Marlborough Primary School (2:30pm to 7:30pm), to find out about the proposals for the Roath Flood Risk Management Scheme.

Around 440 homes and businesses in the Roath, Pen-y-Lan and Newport Road areas of Cardiff are at risk of flooding from the Roath Brook and the River Rhymney. Natural Resources Wales is working with partners to design and deliver a flood risk management scheme on the Roath Brook with the community of Roath.

To keep you informed, we are producing monthly newsletters which summarise our progress, and advertise future public drop-in events. Copies of all newsletters are available from the Natural Resources Wales website in both English and Welsh translation.

We hope to see you at Marlborough Primary School on the 8th September. If you missed our May exhibition, our team will be supporting the Waterloo Gardens fete on the 17th August, where you can visit our stall and meet some of our team.’
