NRW has now published its draft OBC. The shortlisted options are:

  • Natural flood management
  • East Brook channel storage
  • Cadoxton River upstream storage (the dam) 
  • Flood scheme through Dinas Powys
  • Combined Cadoxton River upstream storage (the dam) and East Brook channel storage

NRW says: “Based on our latest assessments, the risks and what we’ve heard from stakeholders and the community, we do not think that there is currently a viable scheme to deliver a community-wide solution to manage the flood risk in Dinas Powys.”

You can read the draft OBC yourself here.
