Council asks Instagrammers and Facebook photographers to stay away from Margam reservoir beauty spot as they’re causing parking nightmare

So many people have been visiting Brombil Reservoir in Margam, Neath Port Talbot to take photos for social media that they’re causing a parking nightmare for local residents and blocking access for emergency vehicles say the local council.

Despite the spectacular views, visitors have also been causing litter problems and are not disposing of their dog mess.

As a result, Neath Port Talbot Council say they’re politely requesting that recreational visitors stay away from the reservoir while a solution to the parking and other problems is worked on.

Police, councillors and others have already held meetings to discuss the issue. However they’ve said that while the discussions continue, that an appeal to would-be visitors to refrain from going there – accompanied by an explanation of the difficulties being faced by local people – could go some way towards easing the problem.

Neath Port Talbot Council say that they do not actively promote Brombil, which is privately owned, and some of the access roads leading to it are also privately owned.

Some traffic control orders (double yellow lines) have been put in place at Brombil but these have, in some instances, been ignored and it has also had the effect of moving the parking issues to adjacent areas.

In the meantime, Neath Port Talbot Council is requesting that people who have no essential need to go the reservoir would refrain from visiting.
