Swansea Bay City Region ‘very excited’: Cllr Meryl Gravell

PLANS to regenerate Llanelli with a £60m Wellness and Wellbeing Village have been warmly received by Swansea Bay City Region board members.

The local authority, supported by the ARCH Programme, has plans to create a new state-of-the-art leisure centre housed on the Delta Lakes development, aimed at improving the wellness of the area through education, research, innovation and improved primary care services.

ARCH (A Regional Collaboration for Health) is a partnership made up of Hywel Dda and ABMU health boards and Swansea University who are working together to create a healthcare system fit for the 21st Century.

The ARCH ethos of improving the health and wealth of South West Wales has been a starting point for Carmarthenshire Council to build on the Delta Lakes project to create facilities which will include life science research, clinical trials programme expansion, as well as the possibility of occupational therapy, primary care medical services, day centre facilities and a hydrotherapy pool amongst other proposals.

The Llanelli Wellness and Wellbeing Village will become the West Wales hub for the expansion of the work of Swansea University’s Institute of Life Science (ILS). The ILS, a key element of the ARCH project, has already created more than 800 jobs, attracted circa £200m of investment, created over 40 new enterprises and supporting more than 270 others in the region. This pioneering work will now expand into the Hywel Dda area as part of ARCH with the Delta Lakes site providing a base for ILS@Hywel Dda

The Carmarthenshire Councilled Llanelli Wellness and Wellbeing Village project comes under the ARCH umbrella. Councillor Meryl Gravell, who is also the chair of the ARCH Wellness and Wellbeing working group, has said the ambitious Llanelli plans have been welcomed by the Swansea City Bay Region board.

The Swansea Bay City Region encompasses the four local authority areas of Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. It aims to bring together business, local government and a range of other partners, to work to a common goal of creating economic prosperity for the people who live and work the City Region.

Councillor Gravell, who sits on the City Region board, said: “The Llanelli project was warmly received at the latest City Region Board meeting last week. The visionary plans were discussed positively, and further meetings with potential investors will be going ahead over the next few weeks.

“The board is very excited by this new concept for Carmarthenshire. “This wellness village could be a life-changer for many people and will certainly make a difference not only to the whole ARCH region, but especially to Llanelli as it will create well-paid jobs and attract investment opportunities, as well as help keep our communities healthier.”

Hywel Dda University Health Board Executive Director of Commissioning, Therapies & Health Science Kathryn Davies and ARCH lead for the health board (pictured) told board members: “The Delta Lakes project has progressed at pace. Carmarthenshire Council is fully engaged with ARCH and our aims.

“This project is now far more than just a leisure centre in Llanelli.

“The site will provide ARCH with a West Wales base to develop the essential research component of ARCH, under the Institute of Life Science (ILS) work, and also expand our clinical trials programme into the Hywel Dda area.”

Scarlets’ grassroots clubs show community spirit in delivering vital food packages

Scarlets community clubs have been working together to help deliver vital food packages across the region.


Volunteers from grassroots clubs and WRU girls hubs across Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire have been helping take the food packages to vulnerable members of society who are self-isolating during the Covid-19 pandemic.


The clubs have teamed up with the Scarlets Community Foundation — the charity arm of the Scarlets — and Carmarthen-based food wholesaler Castell Howell, while Scarlets players Osian Knott, Kieran Hardy, Ryan Conbeer and Jac Morgan have also lent their hand to the operation.


More than 300 packages were due to be delivered on Monday and Tuesday (April 6 & April 7), with the initiative highlighting that even without any action on the field, rugby clubs remain at the heart of their community.
Scarlets Community Foundation manager Caroline Newman said:  “We have been overwhelmed with the support that we have received from local clubs, the number of people prepared to volunteer to help the most vulnerable in our communities has been touching.


“People’s reasons for requesting packs have often been heart-wrenching and it really has made us appreciate what we have.


“The foundation has worked closely with Castell Howell to make sure the packages are ready to go to those whose need is greatest, managing to turn things around pretty quickly and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this happen, our funder, Castell Howell, all the clubs, our helpline volunteer and the foundation members.
“Great teamwork which has made me proud to be part of the fantastic community that rugby creates.”

THE FIRST two cases of coronavirus have been found in Carmarthenshire, the Welsh Government announced today.

The two patients in the Carmarthenshire local authority area had recently returned together from northern Italy.

It comes as the Hywel Dda Health Board which serves the area opened two centres to test for coronavirus, one in Cardigan and one in Carmarthen.

The health board announced it had opened the testing centres to “help protect the health of our communities”, while also saying that centres could be opened in other areas across the health board.

The Chief Medical Officer for Wales, Dr Frank Atherton, confirmed that a total of nine patients in Wales had tested positive for coronavirus (COVID -19) today, bringing the total to 15.

Council unveils ambitious housing plan

Avatar

Published

on

CARMARTHENSHIRE County Council has unveiled major plans to build more council homes and further improve its existing housing stock, including an ambition to move towards ‘carbon neutral homes’.

Executive Board approved an impressive Carmarthenshire Homes Standard (CHS+) business plan this week (February 24, 2020) in a commitment to build on a £286million programme it has already delivered to bring council homes in the county above the Welsh standard for social housing.

Pending Full Council approval in March, the council has outlined its intentions to commit £49million to continue the CHS+ programme whilst developing a new standard to further improve the energy efficiency of their homes, aiming to cut and off-set carbon emissions to ensure homes are warm, cheap to run, and easily adapted to cater for people’s changing needs.

As part of this vision, the council is planning to improve the fabric of houses so that they become more energy efficient. It will also harness off-grid sustainable energy solutions, such as wind and water, and has committed to planting 1,000 trees to off-set carbon emissions.

The council has also made a new commitment to invest £52million building more homes over the next three years as it works towards returning its housing stock to levels last seen in the 1990s.

The new programme will link to the council’s wider strategic regeneration initiatives, including developments in the Tyisha area of Llanelli, town centres and key rural towns.

The administration’s previous promise to deliver 1,000 more affordable homes is just 15 homes short of the target it set itself for 2021, including the completion of its first major new-build development since the 1970s in Pembrey, and the phase-one completion of a second development in Bynea.

Cllr Linda Evans, Executive Board Member for Housing, said the investment would not only improve living conditions for existing tenants and provide more quality affordable homes for local people, but will also contribute to providing employment and training opportunities in the local construction industry.

“The plan is very ambitious – we are building new homes and working with tenants and key partners to ensure Carmarthenshire is at the forefront of the decarbonisation agenda,” she said. “Carmarthenshire is one of three authorities working with Welsh Government to look at measures to decarbonise our homes, and this work will start in the next few months.

“The fact that we have been able to invest in our homes, we’ve been able to build suitable homes and adapt homes for people and their families is very impressive – there’s more to do, but we are ready to take the challenge. It’s a very exciting time.”

Delivery of the council’s ambitions depends on an average rent increase of 2.7 per cent, working out at roughly £87 a week for a two-bedroom home – the second lowest rent level for social housing in Wales and significantly lower than private rented accommodation.

The council will also seek £6.1million from the Welsh Government’s major repairs allowance fund.
