Aims of the Plan

Aims of the Plan?

 

The Cyfarthfa Plan will be a visionary and exemplary strategic masterplan for the development of the cultural, industrial heritage and landscape assets of the Cyfarthfa Estate, Merthyr Tydfil and beyond.

 

It will be a creative, multi-layered masterplan which builds on the vision arising from the Merthyr Tydfil Industrial Heritage Design Charrette of 2017. The plan will identify and define the brief for a number of large and smaller projects to be implemented over the next one to 25 years. An overarching strategy and action plan will demonstrate how these projects relate and work together with transformative effect. The outcome will play an important role in setting a standard for design excellence in future development. It will capture imaginations to attract investment, increase visitor numbers, maintain local support and to radiate its values across the community.

 

The plan aims to be designed to be both deliverable and transformative in its effect. It will show how a wide range of benefits can be achieved through a coherent, integrated, long-term approach. Whilst there is an ambition to create a world class visitor destination at Cyfarthfa, an increase in tourism will not be the only criteria against which options are tested and success is measured. The Cyfarthfa Plan will also seek to optimise benefits across a number of areas including:

 

  • Cultural
  • Community
  • Economic & Social
  • Environmental
  • Health & Wellbeing
