Learn how to do dry stone walling at the reservoirs.

Welsh Water has started work improving the environment around the reservoirs.   One of the things that they are planning to do is to construct a short section of dry stone wall which would act as a refuge for hibernating amphibians and reptiles.  This weekend there is an opportunity for a small number of volunteers to start work on this and to be trained on how to construct a dry stone wall.  It would be all day on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th December, and will involve working outdoors, although there will be shelter available.  If you are interested please contact Annie Smith at annie.smith@dwycymru.com or ring 07774 784 552.

Planning Permission Granted

Dŵr Cymru / Welsh Water had their planning application for the development at Llanishen and Lisvane reservoirs finally approved last week.  Although the application was considered by the Council's Planning Committee at their meeting in mid-June, there were a number of outstanding issues that had to be resolved before formal approval could be given.  Details of the planned development are still available on Dŵr Cymru's website at: www.dwrcymru.com/lisvaneandllanishen.  Work to start putting in footpaths and build the new visitor centre should start later this summer, and it is anticipated that it will take about 15 months for the work to be completed.  Until then, the site will remain closed, but it is hoped the reservoirs will be open to the public again early in 2023.
