Railway Goods Shed
DSA were commissioned to lead an options appraisal on the Llanelli Railway Goods Shed following successive, historic failures to realise development proposals for the site. We identified early on, an intrinsic community importance to the buildings, which was enhanced through a number of community consultation events, and we have subsequently developed a scheme to restore the buildings with modern interventions as a creative community hub. This includes offices, flexible performance space, a community cafe, and associated interpretation that are appropriate to the building and its industrial heritage.
The scheme has stage 1 passes for grant funding from both HLF and Big Lottery, whilst we also guided the proposals to achieve Planning and Listed Building consents with the full support of the Local Authority and associated partners. Round 2 grant applications are to be made this year.
