Sites and Premises Programme Set to Progress After Green Light from Growing Mid Wales Board


Last month marked a significant milestone as the Growing Mid Wales board greenlit the business case for the sites and premises programme. With this approval in place, the programme is now poised to advance the development of its project proposals and commence the planning phase for execution.

Having conducted thorough market demand research and analysis, the endorsed programme business case outlines a roadmap for forthcoming actions. This sets the stage for a significant collaborative effort with project partners aimed at delivering strategically situated investments.

These endeavours are designed to foster an environment conducive to boosting business expansion and enhancing productivity across the region.

Leader of Powys County Council, Councillor James Gibson-Watt and Leader of Ceredigion County Council, Councillor Bryan Davies explain what this means for the programme development.

Growing Mid Wales is eager to work with the private sector and secure wider investment for the development of commercial sites in the region (like the ones mentioned).

Growing Mid Wales is a regional partnership and engagement arrangement between the private and public sectors, and with Welsh and UK Government. The initiative seeks to represent the region’s interests and priorities for improvements to our local economy.

Growing Mid Wales wish to draw together local business, academic leaders and national and local government to create a vision for the future growth of Mid-Wales and influence and champion our future expansion

Across the public, third and private sectors in Mid Wales, we acknowledge the need for developing consensus on priorities for our region, and for sharing our vision to progress jobs, growth and the local economy. We need greater impacts and better results from working together across the region with diminishing public resources.

Growing Mid-Wales will provide regional leadership on our vision and will be an effective, ’light touch’ mechanism that will scrutinise, challenge, identify opportunities and shortcomings and so initiate and propose interventions to achieve more and better results for our region.
