    Weʼve raised £3,074 to pay for legal and expert advice needed to save the ancient trees in Dinas Powys Woods from flooding if a proposed dam is built.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We are Save Dinas Powys Woods and Protect Homes from Flooding.

    We are an independent group of citizens who are concerned at plans published by Natural Resources Wales to flood a beautiful and much loved area of ancient woodland on the edge of Dinas Powys.

    We also want to support local residents who have fears about flooding to their property, which - we believe - have been exaggerated by Natural Resources Wales.

    The area will flood about 4 times a year if NRW build the proposed dam in the Mill Fields, threatening fragile flora and fauna. It's likely there are less invasive alternatives that will prevent Dinas Powys anticipated future flooding but NRW aren't listening.

    We set up this group to look into solutions and, with the help of The Woodland Trust, try to persuade them to reconsider, save ancient woodland and keep our lovely woods open to the public WHILE STILL PROTECTING HOMES.

    Please join Save Dinas Powys Woods. The more people that get behind this, the better chance we have of saving our woods.

    Help us raise money to pay for expert and legal advice needed to save the trees so that we can persuade NRW to find a more environmental friendly plan to prevent the houses in Dinas Powys from flooding in future.

    We propose that any funds not spent on this campaign will be donated to a local environmental charity.

      FANTASTIC NEWS! Jane Hutt has announced that NO DAM WILL BE BUILT IN DINAS POWYS WOODS! Thank you all for your fantastic support throughout this campaign - it just goes to show what can be done if a community comes together to make their voices heard! We are very pleased with this announcement but it is important to remember that our campaign is not over, there are homes at risk of flooding in Dinas Powys and a way needs to be found to protect them. We look forward to working with NRW and the Woodland Trust to design an effective NFM scheme
