The City of Cardiff Council, Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water and Natural Resources Wales are investing £2 million in Greener Grangetown, an innovative scheme to better manage rainwater in the community. Using the latest techniques, this scheme will catch, clean and divert rainwater directly into the River Taff instead of pumping it over 6 miles through the Vale of Glamorgan to the sea. It will help to make Grangetown a greener, cleaner place to live.

The first phase of this exciting initiative will begin in 2015 on the following streets: Bargoed Street, Aber Street, Ystrad Street, Abercynon Street, Holmesdale Street, Taff Embankment, Blaenclydach Place, Blaenclydach Street, Ferndale Street, Coedcae Street, Cymmer Street, Llanbradach Street, Clydach Street and Taff Terrace. This will include new trees, planters, grass channels, drainage kerbs and rain gardens.

A public consultation programme will begin at the end of June where residents will be invited to have their say on the design for their street. Drop-in sessions will be held on:

  • Monday 30th June, Salvation Army Hall, Corporation Road, CF11 7AY from 5pm – 8pm
  • Monday 7th July, end of Coedcae Street, from 3pm – 7pm
  • Friday 11th July, end of Bargoed Street, from 3pm – 7pm

If you are unable to attend one of the drop-in sessions but would like to submit your views electronically, a link will be available shortly to let you do this.
