Our Open Spaces
We are currently carrying out lots of exciting projects to enhance outdoor space in the communities we love.
Already housing 50,000 bees at our Head office in Baglan since 2016, we have created new areas of native wildflowers, helping attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators in the Neath Port Talbot area.
Nant Hir Woodland Garden
This has been a true partnership project with our Neighbourhood Team and two local schools, Cwmnedd Primary and YGG Cwmnedd. The children have been involved in clearing space, planting wildflower and learning about the importance of attracting pollinators.
The children can’t wait to use the space as part of outdoor learning and will be busy making posters to be placed in the area to tell people to enjoy the space.
Open space that we own in Croeserw is a natural habitat for lots of wildlife. Working with Croeserw Primary, Contractor PBM and the Bio Diversity Team at NPTCBC we are in the process of turning this into a nature trail for local people to enjoy.
Enhancing our Haven Schemes
With lots of open space at our Haven scheme’s we have encouraged residents and their families to sow wildflower and plant seeds to enhance the space.
This will help attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators to the area, while making it more aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Other projects include community orchards and community gardens but if you have projects that you think we could help with, please let us know.

Since day 1 our contractors have made a commitment to give their time to worthwhile projects such as our community challenge.
To date it’s helped over 30 initiatives and we will start looking for new projects from September.
People will be asked to apply for the challenge, outlining how their community project will benefit from a day of free building or maintenance work.
All applications will be assessed by our community challenge project team, including our contractors who make it all possible.
An application form will be posted here in September and the community challenge will start from Spring 2020.
