Taff Bargoed Regeneration
Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council and the Taff Bargoed Regeneration Partnership are working with key stakeholders in the public, private and voluntary sector to revitalise the communities in the Taff Bargoed Valley.
Taff Bargoed Regeneration Strategy 2006 identified key issues and areas for development to promote the economic and community development of the valley.
The Taff Bargoed Regeneration Partnership was set up to take forward the action plan. The Board is made up from representatives from the Taff Bargoed Communities First Partnership, Treharris Area Community Trust, Taff Bargoed Development Trust, key stakeholders and community groups, WG and MTCBC.
The Taff Bargoed Regeneration Programme
We have secured funding through the EU Convergence and Welsh Assembly Government Heads of the Valleys programme to secure funding for the following projects:
- Cwm Felin Conservation Area in Bedlinog
- Treharris Town Centre
- Trelewis High Street
- Trelewis & Treharris Gateways
The initial designs for Treharris Town Centre can be viewed under the Treharris Town Centre Enhancement Study to the right of this page.
There have been improvements to Pont Squire Bridge which will extend its life for another 120 years. We have also improved the entrance to Navigation close and also Cardiff Road by adding a new fence at the BT sub station. Both Trelewis and Treharris Gateways have been enhanced and Trelewis Highstreet is now complete.
The Building Enhancement Scheme for Treharris has started and businesses are currently signing up.
The Communities Changing Landscapes: the Parc Taf Bargoed Story project has created three new jobs. It funded a pilot project to develop informal play and involve children more in what happens on the Parc. The programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and People and Places programme.
