Who Are We?
We are an action group campaigning against a proposal published in 2017 by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to construct a dam on The Woodland Trust site in Dinas Powys which includes the cutting down of 2000 square metres of trees including 350 square metres of Ancient Woodland.
The dam will measure 3.5 to 4.5 metres high, and 120 metres long across a wooded field and the Cadoxton Brook, to address a perceived one in one hundred year risk of flooding to property in Dinas Powys. The campaign respects the need to protect local property and recognises that climate change will bring unwelcome consequences which need to be managed. We believe, however, that the actual threat of flood risk has not been accurately calculated, and that the potential risk to this wildlife rich site has not been properly assessed, in short the project is disproportionate in scope.
