A Local Growth Zone is being established in the Teifi Valley.

We have put together a Teifi Valley Implementation Task and Finish group to establish a Zone within the Teifi Valley. This group will oversee the establishment of the Zone and will advise the Minister on priorities to be taken forward.

The Chair of the previous task and finish group which recommended this approach, Delyth Evans MBE, accepted the invitation to Chair the new group in order to provide continuity and maintain momentum.

In addition, the membership of the Group has been agreed as:

  • Kevin Davies, Cawdor Cars & Gwesty'r Emlyn
  • Laurence Harris, Daioni
  • Keith Evans, Local Businessman
  • Jacqui Weatherburn, Coleg Ceredigion
  • Steve Jones, Tai Ceredigion.

The first meeting of the Group took place in September 2015.
