'Shared Spaces' Project

Hay Town Council, working in partnership with Hay Community Woodland Group and Hay in Bloom (now merged into Hay Community Woodland and Gardening Group), alongside other key partners including Brecon Beacons National Park Authority and local landowners, has recently completed an 18-month project called 'Shared Spaces'.  'Shared Spaces' has created a mobility-friendly, circular route around Hay. A grant of £10,000.00 was awarded from Natural Resources Wales for this exciting project.


Hay Town Council, working in partnership with Hay Community Woodland and Gardening Group (HCWGG), the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, lcoal landowners and other individuals, has recently completed its 'Shared Spaces' project. £10,000.00 (50%) of the project was kindly funded by Natural Resources Wales. The remaining £10,000.00 came from Hay Town Council (£4,000.00) volunteer hours and kind donations from HCWGG and the Black Mountain Liions. The project's main aim was to remove all stiles and obstacles from a circualar route in the countryside around Hay to make sure that people of all mobilities can access the countryside and enjoy the natural beauty of Hay-on-Wye.
