The Tondu Wesley Church Centre, a Methodist Church and Community Centre, is currently the only community venue in Tondu. Earlier development works have enabled it to act as a home to a range of organisations which provide community services and activities throughout weekdays, evenings and weekends including Home Educators, Brownies, Trinity Care and Support and Addoldai Cymru.
The Centre is set back from the road on an incline and has a small car park which is not suitable for current or future needs. Access to the car park is quite difficult and impossible for larger vehicles such as mini buses, as the entrance road is narrow with two sharp bends. It is also difficult for disabled access as vehicles need to be able to drive up close to the building.
A small steering group was formed and it worked with the LAG to commission a small scale study to address these issues and re-align the entrance and exit routes and parking area. The study will conclude once the full detail of a proposed local road re-alignment and a new parcel of gifted land have both been confirmed.
The project will subsequently be making an application to the RDP Rural Community Development Fund as well a potentially other funders to put these plans into action.
