Calon Cymru Network has decided to unincorporate and to continue as a voluntary membership organisation, to pursue its aims of rural revival along the corridor of the Heart of Wales railway.
Calon Cymru's members have been busy on several projects during 2021-22. They include:
Severn Wye's 'Rural Futures', including a website for Llandovery, https://www.llandovery.wales.
The continuing efforts of Bronllys Wellbeing Park Community Land Trust to work with Powys Teaching Health Board to create affordable homes and community amenities.
Working to restore social housing in the charity-owned Cornwallis House, Llanwrda. The house, which contained six flats, is a listed building and expensive to restore, especially as future rental income would be restricted.
Liaising with the Heart of Wales Line Development Company, which promotes this important public transport route.
Report submitted to the Welsh Government’s Future Generations Commissioner, on Homes Fit for the Future: the Retrofit Challenge, which pointed out deficiencies in Energy Performance Certificates when applied to retrofitted properties in the rental market.
Response to the Welsh Affairs Committee of the UK Parliament, on The Cultural and Economics of Trade and Environmental Policy on Family Farms in Wales.
