Roath Flood Defence Scheme

A number of constituents have contacted me about the Roath Flood Defence Scheme over a period of time and I have worked with them and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to ensure their concerns are heard and addressed wherever this is possible.

More recently, following a meeting with local residents and campaigners against the felling of trees in Roath Brook Gardens and Mill Park, I made representations to NRW and to the Welsh Government Environment Minister. Here is the exchange of correspondence prior to  the Council's Scrutiny Committee meeting on 5th December to which residents and NRW gave evidence.

I am making this correspondence public in order that concerned local residents can see what I have been doing to reflect concerns about the Scheme.


Edit Sun 10th Dec: Natural Resources Wales have today announced that the tree felling will be paused for a short time in order for NRW officers to liaise with the Minister. You can read the announcement on the NRW website here.

Update Friday 15th December: I have received a reply to my letter to Hannah Blythyn AM, the Minister responsible for NRW:

Why couldn’t Hannah Blythyn be prevailed upon to actually meet residents to hear their concerns rather than hiding behind the NRW and deliberately delaying the announcement of her decision to allow felling until there was no time for it to be challenged?
