Short description of the case study
The New Tredegar Regeneration Scheme undertaken by Caerphilly County Borough Council (CCBC) is focused around land reclamation works and the construction of a new school. Associated works include a new road to reduce traffic in the village to create a safer environment, industrial units, a community wing, including an Information Technology (IT) suite/cyber café, a healthy living centre, a crime prevention centre/police station, community hall and a learning centre/library. The whole community will therefore benefit from the cleaning up of contaminated land and a wide-range of facilities that are being built.
The development is guided by four tools; an Environmental Impact Assessment; the Constructing Excellence Sustainability Indicator Assessment Tool which guides sustainability of the development, and Construction Partnership and KPIs which affect the Project management.
The construction partnership has involved the voluntary sector in all areas and the community is encouraged to be involved in the decision making process.
This case study is concerned with neighbourhood development and the revitalisation of a derelict urban district.
