Business Plan, Community, Visitor and Interpretation Centre, Monmouthshire

Community centre business planClient: adventa

Working for adventa (formally Monmouthshire’s LEADER+ Rural Development Programme) we carried out a feasibility study to assess the opportunity for a dual purpose building – a community centre with an interpretation centre and refreshment area in Sudbrook.  The centre would provide links to the Wales Coast Path and promote the industrial heritage of the area and the building of the Severn Tunnel.

The work included identifying potential sites for the visitor and community centre, carrying out a market review and review of the competitive landscape, an options assessment and consultation with key stakeholders. Working with an interpretation planner we also identified potential ‘stories’ and ‘narrative’ about the industrial heritage and natural environment which would form the core of the interpretation element of the project.
