This leaflet provides an introduction to the Aberystwyth Regeneration Area.

Aberystwyth was designated as a Regeneration Area in April 2010.

At the heart of mid Wales, it is the leading visitor destination in Cardigan Bay and the vibrancy of the town is vital to the local economy.

We have worked with local people to make Aberystwyth a better place for businesses, residents and visitors.

When the programme closes in 2015, we will have invested £10.3m.

The regeneration programme has focused on five key themes:

  • Creating a thriving and attractive town centre
  • improving the quality of homes for local people
  • enhancing sustainable transport in and around the town
  • re-invigorating the seafront and promenade
  • boosting the economy and employment

Our new regeneration framework Vibrant and Viable Places is now in operation.
