Caulmert’s planners have recently secured planning permission, on behalf of Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, for major improvements to the existing Bryn Cowlyd Water Treatment Works. The proposed development will ensure that the quality of drinking water produced continues to meet all relevant standards. Working closely with the scheme designers, our planners co-ordinated the preparation of a series of specialist reports, including landscape impact, ecology, archaeology, noise and traffic which formed part of the planning application. We prepared a Supporting Planning Statement, prepared and submitted the planning application for the proposed development, participated in public consultations and represented the client at Planning Committee. Our client commented “well done all, massive effort put in by everyone concluding in the result we were hoping for on the date we had planned”.
Construction work has now commenced and the development is due to become operational in 2017.
