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.”

£121k watersports funding announced for Llanelli beauty spot

Avatar

Published

on

• Welsh Water, Natural Resources Wales, Llanelli Rural Council & Canoe Wales has secured ‘Access to Water’ funding.

• Visitors will be able to enjoy paddlesports (canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding), windsurfing and angling.

• Site expected to attract 90k+ visitors a year.

The recent announcement of the development of the Swiss Valley reservoirs in Carmarthenshire has been given a boost with the confirmation of an ‘Access to Water’ grant from Welsh Government, worth £121k, that will enable visitor access to the Lower Lleidi reservoir for paddle sports and angling.

The funding will realise plans to bring back a range of paddlesports to the reservoir, including stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking.  It will also enable bank angling through the creation of recreational zones.  A range of improvements to the surrounding infrastructure are also planned to include a boat wash for biosecurity and the creation of paths and a pontoon that allows easy access to water for people of all abilities, and the refurbishment of toilet facilities.

Developing the Swiss Valley Reservoirs is expected to attract 90k+ visitors a year to the site, in line with Covid19 regulations. The ‘Access to Water’ funding is an important milestone in achieving shared ambitions for the site, and to support the funding application, a survey of local canoe clubs, outdoor activity providers and anglers was conducted which found a strong demand for access to the water for their activities. The feedback was that this is likely to generate a huge amount of interest from clubs and providers given it’s ideal geographical location. The community adoption scheme means that local people are offering to invest their own time to help look after this jewel of a community asset, and care for it into the future.

The project is well placed to support the delivery of The Wellbeing of Future Generations Act (Wales) 2015, which requires public bodies in Wales to think about the long-term impact of their decisions, to work better with people, communities and each other, and to prevent persistent problems such as poverty, health inequalities and climate change. Whilst Welsh Water is not a public body, it is committed to working in partnership with Llanelli Rural Council, Natural Resources Wales and Canoe Wales in the spirit of the legislation.

Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, said: “This is an excellent example of a scheme which increases opportunities for outdoor recreation and provides safe access to water for people of all abilities.  The development of these reservoirs will enable local people and visitors to gain more enjoyment from this beauty spot in line with covid19 guidelines and help to support a green recovery in Wales.  I hope the success of this project will encourage development of many more similar opportunities over the coming years.”

Welsh Water Chief Executive Peter Perry said, “Access to blue space is proven to be positively associated with health and wellbeing. Swiss Valley is an important asset for the local community and visitors alike. This funding is a major milestone in our efforts to bring this cherished community asset back to its former glory and make it more accessible, for the health and wellbeing of everyone.”

Jen Browning, Chief Executive of Canoe Wales, the national governing body for paddlesport in Wales, added, “Over the past eight months, we have seen an unprecedented amount of demand for canoeing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, but the limited number of venues in Wales suitable for new paddlers has always been a major obstacle. This funding will ensure that Swiss Valley can play an enormously important role in making it possible for people of all abilities to enjoy the water, and for many to discover a passion for paddlesport and develop a deep connection with the outdoors.”

Dave MacCallum, Specialist Advisor for Water Access & Recreation at Natural Resources Wales and Chairman of NAFW Access to Water Sub-Group said: “We are delighted to have been a part of this important collaboration which will open up these new waters for responsible, inclusive recreation in South West Wales. NRW is committed to doing all we can to enable more people to enjoy Wales’ countryside more easily and responsibly – to take advantage of the many health and wellbeing benefits that getting outside can bring. Benefitting from bespoke disabled paddle-sport access facilities and a Biosecurity station promoting and enabling the Check Clean Dry initiative, the Swiss Valley reservoir project paves the way for future access to Welsh still waters so that current and future generations can continue to enjoy their visits to some of Wales’ most spectacular landscapes”

Llanelli Rural Council Leader, Cllr Tegwen Devichand said “the funding is marvellous news for the community and will enable the council to develop its plans for the reservoir in earnest. Much of the preliminary work associated with the first phase of infrastructure improvements can now get underway, in fact some work has commenced already. The physical adaptations to refurbish the toilet block, visitor car park and access to the water to facilitate paddle sports and the angling fraternity is scheduled to be completed by March 2021, but work won’t stop there. Moreover, the community response to our plans for the reservoir has been overwhelming; the council has received a great deal of local and regional support and a number of interest groups and individuals have come forward to help us deliver our plans as well as to offer their services. This is greatly appreciated and bodes well for the future.”

“I have made many close friends during the 30 years at the business and I truly have enjoyed the hard working and happy atmosphere at Llanelli every day.”

Kay Dodd, Depot Manager, added: “Bev is a valued member of my team here at Llanelli, she provides excellent customer service to customers, clients and colleagues.

Preparatory works to start at key Stepney Street Building

Avatar

Published

on

Preparatory works are due to start on a key building in Llanelli Town Centre ahead of formal planning approval.

Number 49 Stepney Street is being redeveloped as part of a significant investment in the town centre to transform, regenerate and connect its key retails and leisure areas.

Carmarthenshire County Council has submitted plans which could see the former YMCA building retain much of its character whilst providing high quality living space and commercial units

The works would include the restoration of the front façade of the building, along with the retention of the perimeter wall, main internal structural walls and bringing back many original features such as the ornate staircase.

Subject to planning approval the rest of the building would be redeveloped to include two floors of commercial space on the ground and first floors, with eight two-bedroomed living spaces on the upper floors.

There will also be residents parking spaces on the ground floor.

The works currently underway will prepare the building for redevelopment and include stripping and clearance of old materials.

Carmarthenshire County Council leader Cllr Emlyn Dole said: “Many generations of people from Llanelli will have special memories of using this fantastic building over the years and it is such a shame to see it lay empty and falling into disrepair – we’re proud to be leading on this scheme to breathe new life into it once again.”

The council has already spent £4.5million buying empty shop units from private ownership, renovating and bringing them back in to use at affordable rental levels – all of them currently occupied by independent businesses

A Local Development Order has been put in place to simplify the planning process for property owners and potential investors

This project is being procured via the South West Wales Regional Contractors Framework. Carmarthenshire County Council has appointed a regional contractor who will develop the project alongside local supply chains.

For further information on this framework, email TSSWWRCF@carmarthenshire.gov.uk
