Business Service Centre, Barry (Light case study)


Installed in July 2012, this was one of the first UK installations of this type of proprietary rain garden system. Vale of Glamorgan council installed 3 units at the Business Service Centre (BSC) car park to meet environmental quality standards and protect the newly revitalised Barry Dock.
The council decided to review the surface water drainage at the BSC car park, when a previous design using porous paving was proving unsatisfactory. As the overall parking is for 63 cars and the requirements from the Environment Agency (at the time, now Natural Resources Wales) and the Association of British Ports who manage the marine environment of the docks, were that no additional pollution should be allowed to jeopardise the marine ecosystems, a robust treatment solution was required.
