Welsh Business News – WCVA Grants

The Landfill Disposals Tax (LDT) Communities Scheme is now open following the latest round of funding from the Welsh Government. The closing date for bids is 13 January 2020.

The scheme, which is managed by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), has already supported more than 44 local community and environmental projects with a total of £1.7 million committed in grant funding since it was launched last year.

One of the projects that is benefitting from the fund is Cardiff University’s Community Gateway project – Grange Pavilion. Working closely with local residents, primary schools and under-graduate architecture students at Cardiff University, the project is transforming a neglected bowls pavilion and green into a new social community hub. The new hub will offer multiple spaces for community use, a community-focused café and garden for wellbeing, play, education, growing and biodiversity.

The LDTCS funding will contribute to enhancing the biodiversity value of the area as part of this larger programme of works.

Celebrating the success of the scheme, Finance Minister, Rebecca Evans said:

Money raised through the Landfill Disposals Tax is supporting such fantastic community driven projects, such as the Grange Pavilion. This project is an excellent example of what the scheme is all about – nurturing a resilient, welcoming and united community while benefitting the environment.

Speaking about the project, WCVA’s Grant Funds Manager, Catherine Miller said:

The Grange Pavilion project is a great example of taking a rundown community space and transforming it into an urban greenspace for the use of all generations of the local community. The community is fully engaged with the development and implementation of the project and the result will be a valued public space with increased biodiversity.

Project Lead for Community Gateway, Mhairi McVicar added:

The redevelopment of the Grange Pavilion is the result of seven years of huge efforts from so many Grangetown community members, and it’s been an absolute privilege to be able to support their vision through a partnership with Cardiff University.

The ongoing community leadership of this facility will be supported by Cardiff University, Cardiff and Vale College, Taff Housing, RSPB Cymru and Cardiff Bay Rotary Club, and we are all absolutely delighted that Welsh Government has been able to support the project through the LDTCS scheme.

Independent shops in Cardiff just “Hanging On” – Welsh Business News

Shopping: Cardiff city centre independent shops ‘hanging on’ – BBC News

Independent businesses in shopping arcades are “hanging on” due to high costs, one business owner has said. 

Wendy Bottrill, who runs The Pen and Paper in the Royal Arcade in Cardiff, said businesses were “desperate for help”. 

It comes ahead of the inaugural City of Arcades Day in Cardiff, which is aiming to promote seven historical arcades.

The Welsh Government said it was providing £230m of relief to ratepayers across the country this year.

Ms Bottrill said: “The rates here in Cardiff are very expensive. There are varying campaigns at the moment to reduce high street rates and retail is desperate for the help. We are all hanging on.”
