Where is the Plan?

 

The Cyfarthfa Plan will bring together, into one strategy, a number of themes or ‘layers’ which span three scales of focus, each with its key projects and opportunities:

 

Cyfarthfa Heritage Area

 

Merthyr Tydfil 

 

1 - Cyfarthfa Heritage Area

The focus of the masterplan is the Cyfarthfa Heritage Area, including Cyfarthfa Castle, Cyfarthfa Park and the furnaces and surrounding area to the west of the river Taff. Cyfarthfa aims to set the standard for development throughout the town, underpinned by exemplary design quality.

 

2 - Merthyr Tydfil

Just as the development of iron-making led to the development of Merthyr Tydfil as a town, the exploitation of that history in a modern form must also be a source of regeneration and cultural development for the whole town. It should be a means of changing the way in which the world thinks of Merthyr and the way that Merthyr thinks of itself. Connections to the town centre, shops, leisure facilities, heritage assets and transport links will be explored, as well as opportunities for cultural events.
