The Pen y Cymoedd Wind Energy Project is a 76 turbine development in the county boroughs
of Neath Port Talbot and Rhondda Cynon Taf.
The project will provide a community fund worth around £1.8 million annually for over 20 years. This money is coming, so now is your chance to make something happen in your area and get your ideas out there – they could become a reality!
We have been out and about over the last few months meeting with local groups, talking about what they think could be done with this funding. Some clear issues have come up from these discussions – things the community think are important to tackle for their future. The first one we are looking at is health.
In this film, you can hear from some of our local ambassadors and find out more about the work that’s going on and how you can get involved.
Power in the valleys
Natural Resources Wales’ contractors are making excellent progress onsite, and the tree clearance work is on schedule. We’ve got all kinds of people working onsite at the moment. We went around for a day to meet them, and let them tell you a little bit about their work, how they do it, and what it’s like to be out in the forest working on Pen y Cymoedd. Here is the first of four people that we caught up with.
Tell us what you think needs to be done to improve the community’s health.
