Swiss Valley Play Area - 14/07/2015

Work is underway on the regeneration of the play area at Swiss Valley!

Local residents will be delighted that the dilapidated play area is being replaced with new modern items of play equipment and safety surfacing at a cost of nearly £81,000 by HAGS-SMP, the company engaged by Llanelli Rural Council. View PDF Download 1

The design of the play area was the preferred option chosen at a community consultation event held in March 2015 and endorsed by the Council.

The Leader of Council, Cllr. Carol Rees, said ‘Llanelli Rural Council is delighted that the children of Swiss Valley will soon have a new play area which will offer a wide range of play experiences, accessible to both disabled and non-disabled children and children of all ages. I’m sure they’ll thoroughly enjoy the facility over the school summer holidays and for very many years to come.’

The scheme is being supported by funding from The Veolia Environmental Trust and CWM Environmental Limited via the Landfill Communities Fund.

Editors’ notes

The Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) is an innovative tax credit scheme enabling Landfill Operators (LOs) to contribute money to organisations enrolled with ENTRUST as Environmental Bodies (EBs). EBs use this funding for a wide range of community and environmental projects in the vicinity of landfill sites. LOs are able to claim a credit (currently 5.7%) against their landfill tax liability for 90% of the contributions they make.

Since its inception in 1996, over £1.3bn billion has been spent on more than 51,000 projects across the UK. For further information, please visit www.entrust.org.uk or see HMRC’s general guide to Landfill Tax.

The Veolia Environmental Trust has been supporting community and environmental projects through the Landfill Communities Fund for 18 years. Since we were established in 1997, Veolia has supported us by contributions of over £63 million to 1951 projects.

We have helped fund a diverse range of projects, including the repair of woodland footpaths, the renovation of community halls and the installation of playgrounds and play areas. For more information, or to find out how to apply for funding, visit our website www.veoliatrust.org.

CWM Environmental Limited’s (CWM’s) goal is to increase the amount of reuse, recycling and recovery from all waste streams which are disposed at Nantycaws Landfill Site, Household Waste Recycling Centres, Transfer Stations and the Materials Recycling Facility where CWM manages your materials in Carmarthenshire.

In 2007, the CWM Community and Environmental Fund was established, enabling CWM to work in partnership with GrantScape, who are an enrolled Environmental Body under the LCF. This grant programme supports projects in Carmarthenshire delivering significant environmental benefits, creating local jobs, and improving the lives of communities living near landfill sites by providing new and better amenities. Since its launch, the Fund has provided over £2 million to more than 100 deserving projects across Carmarthenshire.
