Brombil reservoir: Margam residents angered by visitor influx


A large influx of visitors to a south Wales reservoir has caused traffic chaos and major litter problems.

People are visiting Brombil Reservoir in Margam to post photos on social media, Neath Port Talbot council says.

Residents have been “suffering” because of the problems and the authority has now asked visitors to “stay away” while a solution is “worked on”.

South Wales Police said it would be conducting regular patrols of the area and issuing fines where appropriate.

“It has led to frequent blocked access and severe parking problems for local residents and access for any emergency vehicles has often become blocked,” the council said.

“There are also issues involving littering and dog mess.”
