Dyfodol Dyfi - Planning a Brighter Future

Bringing communities together along the Dyfi; to gather needs, share information, develop ideas; to build a brighter future.

We will discover what community means to us and we will celebrate what our communities do well.

Together we are exploring past and current development projects. We are asking you what you think is needed for you, your family, your friends, your community. We will gather your ideas into a Community Plan to support community action and funding applications

We will ensure the following topics are explored, amongst others:

•             Needs of younger people;

•             People’s well-being,

•             Community facilities such as meeting spaces;

•             Skills and livelihoods.

We will draw on previous community exercises that describe unmet needs, particularly:

•             Rural Futures’ action-planning report ‘Bro Glantwymyn,

•             The ‘Making a Difference’ community survey ,

•             The Trywydd Iach School Survey report dated July 2021

•             Machynlleth Climate Action’s action planning process, 

•             The Dyfi Biosphere’s business and development process,

•             Summit to Sea’s co-designed project ‘Blueprint’,

 

We would like to deliver some feasibility or business planning and support current projects such as;

•             Re-use of The Old Stables (Machynlleth),

•             A performance area at Y Plas,

•             Development of Canolfan Owain Glyndŵr,

•             Development of village halls/hubs, including Penegoes, Darowen,

We intend to continue the joint working after the project ends, evolving the project group into a network that brings together local elected representatives across the planning area, community groups, and others. Funding targets for proposals in the plan will include the anticipated Shared Prosperity Fund, the National Lottery Community Fund and public sector bodies.

Ecodyfi is acting as the ‘responsible body’ for the evolving local network called ‘Dyfodol Dyfi’ during the project period of mid-May to 31st October 2022, so that the area can access a grant from the UK Government’s Community Renewal Fund through Powys County Council and the Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations.
