New security fencing is set to be erected around two water reservoirs in Cardiff in order to prevent unauthorized access on the premises, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Permission has been given by Cardiff council to Dwr Cymru to install secure fencing and gates to the west and south of Llanishen and Lisvane reservoirs.
The plans for the fence say it will be 2m tall mesh without barbed wire on the top.
It will be put in place against the existing line from trees. At other parts of the site, new gates will be installed for both pedestrians and vehicles.
In one section, the fence will rise to 2.4m.
The proposal said that installing the new fences and gates would prevent “unauthorised access to the site and securing the potential hazards within”.
It will also help protect the Grade II-listed structure inside.
A spokesman for Welsh Water said: “We are pleased that planning permission has been granted to reinstate the perimeter fence at Llanishen and Lisvane reservoirs. Over the years the current perimeter fence has eroded or been damaged.
“We undertook all of the necessary environmental and ecological surveys and liaised with relevant interested groups during the planning process to ensure the fence is appropriate for the site and that the site’s valuable ecology is protected while the fence is put up.
“We are still in the process of reviewing the details of the determination and we will update local residents as soon as have a date for starting the work on the fence”.
