Going Green for Newtown

We congratulate Going Green for Newtown on securing the largest asset transfer of land in Wales, together with a £1.5 million grant from Big Lottery to develop significant green areas along the River Severn, and in and around the town for the enjoyment of local people and visitors.


Resources for Change was in at the beginning of this process, working with local people to develop a Community Plan, where the green areas in and around the town were identified as a priority, and then facilitating sessions with Newtown Town Council, who have been active partners in developing this project, including supporting the newly established Community Land Trust who will manage the overall project.
