Feasibility Study: Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) on the Lady Windsor Site, Ynysybwl

Funding is sought to undertake a feasibility study into a SuDS provision on the site of the Lady Windsor Colliery, Ynysybwl which closed in 1988, since this time the area has been waste ground. The community of Ynysybwl has wanted to bring this area back into community use for almost 30 years. Many other colliery sites have been brought back into use for leisure use since their closure but not Lady Windsor, a SuDS would offer the opportunity to begin the reclamation of the site for community use.   

A successful Suds would support the delivery of Leader themes specifically “adding value to local identity and natural and cultural resources” through the revitalisation of an area of industrial wasteland providing an area for nature to bloom and the community to explore, learn and enjoy.
