With climate change, flood risk was predicted to increase along the Roath Brook in Cardiff, resulting in higher fluvial flows and an increase in the frequency of overtopping of the existing defences.

Natural Resources Wales, therefore, developed a flood risk management scheme for the area. We were appointed to assist with landscape design, landscape and visual impact assessment and preparation of verified photomontages.

The Roath Brook runs through a residential area, two conservation areas and a listed park and garden, which is highly valued by residents.

Through careful selection of form and alignment, the proposals retain the character of the gardens and respond to the conservation areas and local character. Valued mature trees and historic park railings were retained and locally sourced materials were integral to the design.
