The Cardiff Bay Development Corporation funded the purchase and construction of the reserve, as part of compensation measures for the loss of the Taf/Ely Estuary Site of Special Scientific Interest, following the construction of the Cardiff Bay Barrage. Newport Wetlands was transferred to NRW in March 2000.
Natural Resources Wales (NRW) manages the reserve and works in partnership with Newport City Council (NCC) and the RSPB to maximise the full visitor interpretation and educational potential of the site.

Severn Estuary Partnership

Set up in 1995, the Severn Estuary Partnership is an independent, estuary-wide NON-statutory initiative led by local authorities and statutory agencies. We work with all those involved in the management of the estuary, from planners to port authorities, fishermen to farmers and many more with an interest in the future of the estuary.
