Welsh Water Sewerage work at De Braose Close PDF Print E-mail

Welsh Water have built a track at the end of De Braose Close into the woods as they wish to install a sewage pipe that will connect to a Pumping Station in Hailey Park, so that the sewage will flow to Cardiff Waste Water Treatment Works as an alternative to Cog Moors Waste Water Treatment Works.


The pipe will be connected to a valve installed in the system and controlled via a cabinet placed at the end of De Braose Close. The pipe will pass deep underneath the railway and river and connect to an underground pumping station accessed by the lane to the Hailey Park changing rooms from Ty-Mawr Road.


This work is due to the Plasdŵr development, which will connect to the sewage pipe in Herbert March Close. Work is planned to start mid 2022. Further details are on the Cardiff Planning System here

The location of the De Braose cabinet and the Hailey Park pumping station are on this map.

The double ponds are on the right hand side of this diagram near the gardens of Herbert March Close. The temporary vehicle only access situated within the precinct of a Toucan crossing on Llantrisant Road will be made permanent for Council Parks maintenance or emergency access.
The above diagram also shows the ponds around the Llantrisant Road / Heol Isaf junction that are part of the Plasdŵr surface water scheme managed by Redrow under Cardiff Council planning application  21/00645/MJR. This is the only information online about the Council ponds and is not part of any planning application.
Cardiff Council have stated that they are acting under their permitted powers to disperse the highway surface water as Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water sewers will not have the capacity to accept it. The ponds' capacity is stated as coping with a maximum rainfall event that occurs once in 100 years plus 40% 
About half the park has already been fenced off as a construction site, and the access road and ponds excavation will begin soon.
There is no information on the Council website other than the Redrow planning application for this scheme for Attenuation Ponds or Basin.
This Danescourt Community Association has posed 20 Questions formally to the Council and will be publishing their responses. Clarification has also been requested as to what permitted powers have been used for this scheme and why was there no consultation nor advance notice.
