Carmarthenshire County Council and the Welsh Government are working as Joint Venture partners to promote the long term regeneration of the whole of the Bury Port and Llanelli Coastline.


Project Details
  • Client

    Carmarthenshire CC
    Welsh Government

As part of the project Waterman have carried out the following:

  • Hydraulic analysis of the Nant Dyfatty and potential tidal flooding at Burry Port, Llanelli.
  • Model outputs were subsequently used to update the NRW Flood Map and the TAN15 Development Advice Map.
  • Assessment of existing drainage infrastructure and pluvial flood risk. Subsequent strategic drainage design for foul and surface water discharges.
  • Fluvial analysis carried out using FEH and Tuflow. The Assessment has provided input to the Master plan and subsequently enabled mitigation measures to be designed to promote 3no. mixed use development sites.
  • Air and Noise Quality Assessments
  • Transport Assessment
  • Archaeology
  • Ecology
  • Visual Impact
  • Geotechnical and Geo-environmental advice
  • Remediation Strategy
  • Structural Surveys including Listed Structures
  • Services Design
  • CDM Coordinator
  • Commercial advice on Abnormal Construction Costs

The NRW Flood Map originally showed the whole of the Master Plan area to be at risk of flooding.

Our detailed analysis has however revealed this not to be the case and has permitted the progression of a Master Plan for around £40m of mixed use development.
