A series of workshops are to be held next week to discuss the Roath Brook flood scheme.

This is an opportunity for residents to discuss the scheme directly with the people who are delivering it and get answers to any questions you may have.

NRW will also provide a brief presentation about:

  • the background to the scheme
  • why it’s needed
  • what different options were considered
  • how contractors are managing the impact of the work on wildlife
  • what NRW is doing to save as many trees in the area as possible

The workshops are being held after talks between NRW and the Roath Brook Trees campaign group.

NRW has paused tree felling to allow discussions with the local community take place.

The sessions are expected to last between an hour to an hour-and-a-half and will be held at Pen-y-Lan Library and Community Centre on:

  • Tuesday 23 January at 10:00, 1:00, 3:00 and 6:00
  • Wednesday 24 January at 10:00, 2:00 and 4:00.

There is capacity for up to 20 people to attend every session and people are asked to register in advance by emailing roath@naturalresourceswales.gov.uk.

Due to the limited number of spaces available, it might not be possible for people who haven’t registered for a specific session to attend.

I would highly recommend any residents with views or concerns about the scheme to register and attend these workshops.

More information on the scheme is available at www.naturalresources.wales/roath.

UPDATE 5TH FEBRUARY 2018:

Following these workshops, the Roath Flood Scheme team have provided the presentation used at the workshops, which you can view online here.

The team has confirmed that they are still considering their position and will not be felling trees in the week commencing 5th February.

I will continue to pass on updates and when I receive them.
