DESTINATION, TRAVEL & TRANSPORT

We asked people what they love about living and working in South West Wales, and what our region should be famous for.  A huge sense of pride emerged from these conversations – a recognition that we really are lucky to be here.

Everyone agrees that we should really do a better job of celebrating the quality of life, the sense of community, the amazing natural environment, the kindness of people and the many opportunities our region has to offer.

And we should be working collaboratively to address the challenges we face, to create flourishing local places, connected by inclusive and sustainable transport. 

One of the ways we’re helping to do this is through our new Community Rail Partnership for South West Wales.

OUR ACTIVITY

In partnership with Swansea Environmental Forum and Natural Resources Wales, we are planning a major transport conference for South West Wales, taking place online in February 2021.

We need greener, cleaner, healthier and better connected travel and transport for South West Wales, for a transport system that meets the needs of businesses, serves communities, and improves well-being across the region.

Join us to help shape the future of transport in Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea: What should the government be investing in, what could the local authorities be doing, and how can people, communities and businesses be part of the solution?

We want to hear from YOU.
