Assembly agrees funding for five more projects in Aberystwyth

The Welsh Government's Deputy Minister for Housing and Regeneration, Jocelyn Davies, has announced that the Aberystwyth Regeneration Area Partnership Board have approved a variety of projects for the town, including an ‘Adizone’ and multi-use games area at Min y Ddôl, Penparcau and a £1 million scheme to improve housing and living conditions in properties along the promenade.

Funding for improvements to Aberystwyth’s bus station and the area around the town’s train station was also granted, as well as an approval in principle for the development of the Mill Street car park site.

Following the announcement, Ceredigion's Assembly Member, Elin Jones, said:

“I’m very pleased that the Deputy Minister is now in a position to officially confirm that five projects in Aberystwyth have been approved for funding under the town’s SRA scheme.

“These are very welcome projects which will improve the town’s amenity for both local residents and visitors alike, and I look forward to seeing tangible progress on these schemes in the near future”.

  1. Are allotment prices still going to go up to give the council an extra £5K? Seems an odd thing to do, especially in areas like Penparcau.

    '...and a £1 million scheme to improve housing and living conditions in properties along the promenade...' I hope these are not private own properties..why should the tax payer pay individuals who own properties well worth over quarter a million plus.. to improve their assets?!
