Aberystwyth Renewal Area

A proposed Aberystwyth Renewal Area will be the subject of Open Days on Monday and Tuesday 24th and 25th January.

Aberystwyth’s designation as a 'Renewal Area' is part of the Welsh Assembly Government's Strategic Regeneration Area funding and follows the success of the Cardigan Renewal Area, which has been on-going for the past seven years and has revolutionised the look of the town. Another Renewal Area has recently been declared for Tregaron and Neighbouring Villages.

The Aberystwyth Scheme will concentrate on housing issues and aims to upgrade the town’s dilapidated properties and public areas, improve energy efficiency in the town’s oldest houses, reduce the number of vacant properties and improve access for the disabled.

The open days are an opportunity for people to find out about the scheme and put their views about exactly what’s needed. They'll be held at Canolfan Morlan in Queens Road on:
Monday 24th Jan 10am – 8pm
Tuesday 25th January 10am – 4pm

  1. I went to the open day today and it was really interesting to have a chat to people there. I liked the idea that buildings with spaces above could be renovated so people could rent the rooms. I think that the council would have first choice at placing people on their lists too. There was also a lot of support of planting more trees and plants in the whole of Aber. It looked a majority of people wanted to see the re-generation of the Bridge Street area. It's a good idea as it joins onto the Penparcau road, one of the major residential in-roads. So it's easy to see how the scheme could move out of the centre and expand to Trefechan, Penparcau and have an impact on the larger community as well as the buildings and peoples first impressions of the area as they enter, after the Aberystwyth sign and head towards town.
