Title: River Ely catchment management plan : consultation report March 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
This plan considers the catchment of the River Ely. Much of the catchment is rural, though there are extensive developments lower down the valley. The character of the middle Ely has changed in the last few decades with the demise of traditional industries like mining and the development of the M4 motorway cutting across the river valley near Llantrisant. Consequently much of the future development is planned for this particular area. Industry is concentrated at Tonyrefail, Llantrisant and Cardiff. The predominant agricultural activities are dairy farming in the middle and lower reaches and sheep farming in the upper reaches of the catchment.
