Park Life

A new park has recently been opened to the public at Glan Llyn as part of Phase 1 of a regeneration scheme at Llanwern. Pleydell Smithyman Limited are part of a multidisciplinary team who have been commissioned by ProSurv Consult, on behalf of St Modwen Properties PLC, to provide advice, masterplanning, landscape design, contract administration and maintenance expertise for a new development on the site of a former steelworks in South Wales. The development will provide 4,000 dwellings, a new local centre, business park, schools, large areas of parkland and lakes, and landscape corridors between development plots consisting of reenside walkways, greenways, cycle routes and play areas.

So far Pleydell Smithyman Limited's involvement has been from the planning process, through to the design and implementation of the landscape works for the first two phases of the scheme including the design of Lakeside Park. The park consists of a Neighbourhood Equipped Area for Play (NEAP), Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), seating areas, lakes & wetlands, woodland belts & reenside walkways.
