These are exciting times for Llanelli! The landscape is rapidly changing; both the Library and Llanelly House are embracing a mixture of historical and futuristic refurbishment, while the East Gate and Y Ffwrnes developments will provide modern leisure facilities. Linking all the developments together with streetscape enhancements is the ADREF project.
The regeneration of Llanelli doesn’t stop at the town centre! New linkages have been created between surrounding communities and the coast, allowing local residents the opportunity to safely travel to one of the area’s best leisure attractions – the Millennium Coastal Park. Gateways into the town centre will be changing over the next 18 months – so keep an eye out for a roundabout near you! Schools and community groups will be called upon for ideas and be involved in the creation of public art in the town centre and businesses will benefit from grants to improve their property fronts.
Local residents will also benefit from the Coleshill Centre for Economic Inclusion which will provide a one-stop-shop for training, advice and improved employment opportunities.
Overall it is hoped the £60m of inward investment will create an environment where local businesses will prosper, residents benefit from increased leisure facilities and the whole of Llanelli’s community will have a town they can be proud of!
