Ceredigion County Council is pleased to announce that it's been successful in obtaining a £125k grant from the Welsh Governments Enabling Natural Resources and Wellbeing fund in order to install a purpose-built boardwalk along the River Teifi in Cenarth.

The scheme is match funded through the Council’s capital programme and will take approximately three years to complete, with the hope of starting the project at the end of summer this year.

Improving the path width and surface will increase access to a wider cross-section of residents and visitors and is a testament to the Council’s commitment in targeting the removal of barriers to accessing the countryside and applying the least restrictive access principles.

Local volunteers will be instrumental to the success of the project both in the initial construction process and in helping to maintain the boardwalk for the enjoyment of future generations.

Corporate Lead Officer for Economy and Regeneration is Russell Hughes-Pickering He said, “This is excellent news for the residents of Cenarth and the surrounding area. It's an ambitious project, one which will provide an additional resource for residents and visitors to the area, bringing with it health, active travel and economic benefits.”

An information event is being held at the Cenarth Falls car park on 10 May between 2pm and 6pm where guests can ask questions and receive more details on the project.
