THE OPENING of the Coracle Offices in Carmarthen Town Centre has been described as ‘one of the final pieces of the jigsaw’ of redevelopment in that area.
The offices in St Catherine Street were built with the support of the South West Wales Property Development Fund whose lead authority is Carmarthenshire County Council.
The development was built by Bassett & MacGregor Ltd and the architect was Sauro Architectural Design. The total cost of the development was more than £666,000 and the PDF grant was almost £300,000.
The new building accommodates nine jobs and is home to Eagle Accountancy Ltd, Power for Wales Inc Ltd, and Steven Rees Wealth Management Ltd. It has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating for sustainability and is self sufficient for energy.
Carmarthenshire County Council Chairman Cllr Peter Hughes Griffiths said he was pleased to see schemes such as Coracle Offices being developed in Carmarthenshire and it fitted in with the 10-year plans of the Carmarthen Town Forum.
“I would like to congratulate everyone involved. Here in St Catherine Street we have an excellent development,” he said.
Cllr, Alun Lenny, one of the two local members, said: “Here is one of the final pieces of the jigsaw in the regeneration of this part of Carmarthen town centre. What was here before was an eyesore and now there is an impressive and attractive business premises.”
Funding for this programme has been secured from the European Union via the Convergence programme.

WALES & West Utilities will shortly begin work to upgrade gas pipes in Llandeilo.

Wales & West Utilities has liaised with Carmarthenshire County Council to plan the work and it has been agreed that work will commence after the town has celebrated the Festival of Senses.

The £123,000 investment scheme, which is essential to keep the gas flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses, will begin in New Road on 21 November. This section of work will be complete before Christmas and Wales & West Utilities will return to the town next year to undertake further work in the Crescent Road area. Barring any engineering difficulties, work in the town will be complete by the end of February next year.

Wales & West Utilities Adam Smith is managing this gas pipe upgrade work. He said: “Working with the Council, we have planned this work to accommodate the needs of the town.

“While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across Llandeilo. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it.

“We know that working in areas like this is not ideal, but it really is essential to make sure we keep the gas flowing to homes and businesses in the area, and to make sure the gas network is fit for the future. We’ll have a team of gas engineers on site throughout the project to make sure our work is completed as safely and as quickly as possible while keeping disruption to a minimum.

“This work is essential to keep the gas flowing to local homes and businesses today, and to make sure the gas network is ready to transport hydrogen and biomethane, so we can all play our part in a green future.”
