Planning Solutions Consulting was commissioned by the City and County of Swansea on behalf of the Swansea Rural Development Programme (RDP)’s Local Action Group (LAG) – to carry out an independent and comprehensive feasibility study to enhance the offer at Ty Borfa activity centre. Ty Borfa residential activity centre offers subsidised school, youth group and family residential trips and activities. It also offers self-catering/full board and tourism opportunities to commercial guests. Our work at Ty Borfa focussed on:

  • Consulting and engaging with a range of stakeholders
  • Identifying innovative commercial solutions to take advantage of the growth in the outdoor activity sector.
  • Developing a plan to maximise the potential of Ty Borfa whilst at the same time being able to continue to offer a subsidised service to young people and families
