Wetland Reserve Suggested for Llanfoist

Local businessman, Ben Jones, apparently with the support of the Gwent Wildlife Trust, has written to the Abergavenny Chronicle about his proposal for an 80 acre wetland nature reserve on County Council land adjoining the waste transfer site at Llanfoist.  Welsh Water are already interested in the possibility of using the reserve to extra cleanse storm surge water from their treatment plant.  Ben and the Trust are seeking volunteer support initially to persuade MCC to back the plan and eventually to help manage the reserve – contact info@gwentwildlife.org.
