Green light for new visitor centre at Penllergare
The Penllergare Trust is celebrating after receiving planning permission from the local authority to build a new visitor centre at its historic site. The new building will have a low carbon footprint and use green technology such as solar power and utilise the Trust’s Archimedes screw water pump to generate energy. It will be clad with timber shingles sourced from the woods and be located in a spot that will enhance the sensitive Grade II registered picturesque landscape of Penllergare Valley Woods. There will also be extra toilets in the new centre and there will be more parking spaces available for local visitors and tourists from farther afield.
