In his role as Chair of the Valleys Taskforce the Cabinet Secretary for Local Government and Public Services will visit three areas across the valleys to discuss his proposals for a “Valleys Landscape Park” with community stakeholders.
The aims for the proposal are to invest in the Valleys’ natural and cultural assets, empower local communities, offer outstanding and accessible recreational opportunities, engender community pride in the Valleys and enhance Valleys town centres as vibrant places, with attractive green spaces, which support local economies.
By implementing the actions set out in the plan the Valleys will become a place where communities are empowered, and the local environment is easily accessible, widely used and at the heart of Valleys life.
These events will provide stakeholders with the opportunity to shape the proposal for the Valleys Landscape Park and to influence decisions around statement sites across the Valleys and local community projects with potential for development.
An agenda is attached.
The dates and venues for the events are included below:
16 April Dare Valley Country Park 17:30 – 19:30
26 April Bedwellty House and Park 17:30 – 19:30
30 April Pontardawe Arts Centre 17:30 – 19:30
