Since our initial concept was created developments have been made in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which have both direct and indirect influences on the development of our proposals. Press Releases like Lee Waters MS’s “A golden opportunity for change” has provided us with food for thought about the way we’ll continue to travel throughout and post-COVID-19. It’s certainly opened some creative pathways to the original sustainable retail, food and leisure park we first envisaged.
We’ve made considerable progress since publishing our first of many Logs regarding this in-house development, that being through initial contact with Council and Private Estates teams to identify suitable areas where we may look to design our initial concepts, many video calls to estates managers, company owners and multi-sector funding organisations who will be pivotal in the success of what we have planned.
We have so many amazing ideas for the park which we’re certain will meet with the needs of local businesses, the economy and its customers. But nothing good comes without first undertaking essential thorough research and setting the foundations, including the all-important siting and funding provisions.
What we can reveal is that we’re in talks with multiple site owners who are very interested in our concept and are working with us to develop ideas and research into feasible development plans. Our aim is to assist those who we’ve contacted in relation to suitable sites to understand the opportunities associated with what is a temporary yet sustainable development, created from recycled materials.
Media update: we’ve been featured in Wales Online. With a surge of interest, we are developing a webspace specifically for what, as a working title, will be called FR8PK.
