7th May 2009: CADW TO LIST LLANISHEN RESERVOIR AS SITE OF HISTORIC / ARCHITECTURAL INTEREST!
In another blow to Western Power's plans to drain Llanishen reservoir and build a housing estate in the reservoir bowl, Cadw has recommended that the reservoir structure should be listed as a building of architectural or historic interest. This would make it extremely difficult for Western Power to gain permission to damage the structure in any way. Alun Ffred Jones A.M., The Welsh Assembly Government Heritage Minister, is minded to accept the recommendation, and has asked his officials to commence a 28-day consultation period with interested stakeholders before the reservoir structure is listed. The news was revealed in letters to local Assembly Members Jenny Randerson and Jonathan Morgan, who had both made representations for the reservoirs be protected as a site of historic interest. A copy of the letter from the Heritage Minister can be read by clicking here.
