Work Starts to Smarten up Key Investment Site in Port Talbot

Gwaith yn Dechrau i Wella Safle Buddsoddi Allweddol ym Mhort Talbot



A prominent development site in Aberavon, Port Talbot is to be given an overhaul to help show off its potential to investors.

The Burrows Yard site is in a popular residential area, close to Port Talbot’s town centre.

It lies just across the road from the successful Green Park redevelopment which has seen the transformation of a former industrial estate into a safe and desirable place to live, with excellent transport links and public pathways and cycle ways, riverside walk and park.

The work will include clearing vegetation and installing new perimeter fencing to secure the 40,000sqm site.

The new fencing will be made of steel, supplied by Tata, and can be reused on other sites once Burrows Yard has been developed.

Deputy Leader of Neath Port Talbot Council, Cllr. Anthony Taylor said:

“The Council is in discussions with potential developers and the redevelopment of the site will be another piece of the jigsaw of the regeneration work in and around Port Talbot.”
