Support the Pantmaenog Timber Cluster project!

By 12th February 2021News

A new model of living and developing businesses in the same location is currently under consideration by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Planning department!

Centred around a community facility and its connection to over 1,500 acres of woodland near Rosebush, 6 houses will each have their own dedicated workshop and will be supported to develop their own social enterprise linked directly to the commercial woodland, which is managed on continuous cover basis aimed at enhancing biodiversity and protecting the natural beauty of the Preseli range.

Supported by the Wales Co-operative Centre, the co-operative tenancy model, will be an exemplar of affordable rent (in perpetuity) and a start-up space of social businesses.

The development will be led by Down to Earth, a multi-award winning, social enterprise, currently based on Gower, Swansea, who have a 15-year track record. The entire model is based on offering construction and land management programmes as a rehabilitative tool working closely with Health Boards, Local Authorities and other third sector organisations.

This is a model which is fit for the post-Covid future, whether your focus is environmental, economic, or person centred.
