An undeniable opportunity that will transform the South Wales Valleys
Having acquired the site in 2013, we approached this scheme as a blank canvas, and we have spent extensive time and resources understanding in detail the unique ecological and heritage features of the site, and how we can design a scheme to work sensitively. The regeneration successes in recent years in the region such as Redhouse Cymru, Merthyr College and retail offerings such as Cyfarthfa Retail Park and Trago Mills demonstrate that the region is focussed on economic development.
There is also clearly a focus on developing the area for adventure sport. With the success of Bike Park Wales and Rock UK, a sports & leisure destination is well-positioned to build on that momentum. In terms of housing, a new residential neighbourhood supports the local need to develop more long-term supply. Connecting an existing neighbourhood with an iconic sports & leisure destination right on the doorstep, Rhydycar West is a perfect location for new homes.
