Flood scheme gets go-ahead.

WORK on part of a flood prevention scheme in Barry has been given the go-ahead.

Plans by the Vale of Glamorgan council to construct an embankment to form a holding lagoon for storm water on existing open space off Dyfan Road, Gibbonsdown, Barry, have been approved by the council's planning committee.

The work will include excavation to form an embankment, outlet and overspill channel.

The primary part of the development involves carrying out cut and fill operations to create a shallow retention pond for storing storm water within the existing grassed area.

The scheme will also feature a new drainage ditch and pedestrian footbridge in the north-west corner.
