Community land trust launches logo competition

An ambitious community group in the Dyfi valley is offering budding designers the chance to create its logo - but there is no time to lose.

Bro Ddyfi Community Land Trust was re-established at a public meeting on 1st July. The Trust aims to provide affordable and sustainable housing and other community benefits, through acquiring and holding land and property for the long term prosperity of the Dyfi Valley.

The new Steering Group met on 12th July and identified two priority sites for action. The Forestry Commission is willing in principle to transfer its site at Esgairgeiliog/Ceinws so that it can be used more beneficially. The business case and finance needs to be put together.

The second site in the Trust’s sights is the former Machynlleth Primary School, from where a number of Welsh Assembly Government jobs were transferred to Aberystwyth recently. The building is owned by Powys County Council, who are discussing their policy for redundant sites at the end of July.

Other possibilities include a small patch next to the recently built housing in Llanwrin, which might suit play or gardening purposes. Community Councils throughout the Dyfi Valley, from Aberdyfi to Llanbrynmair and from Dinas Mawddwy to Taliesin, will be invited to suggest other sites.

Readers are invited to send their ideas and designs for a logo to the Trust at Tŷ Bro Ddyfi, Y Plas, Machynlleth SY20 8ER or to andy.rowland@ecodyfi.org.uk by 15 thAugust. They can be on paper or in electronic form. The most suitable design will win £50 in local shop vouchers and be worked up into the official logo. Full terms and conditions can be found here

Editor’s notes:

Ecodyfi is the community regeneration group for the Dyfi Valley. It pays particular attention to strengthening the local economy through careful stewardship of natural and cultural resources. It is managed by a Board of 17 local people and is supported through commercial contracts or grants, e.g. from the Welsh Assembly Government, Tourism Partnership Mid Wales and local authorities.

The Bro Ddyfi Community Land Trust is registered as an Industrial and Provident Society, a not for profit organisation with an asset lock - so that there will be no privatisation of land assets. As democratic and local accountability is central, membership is open to local residents who agree with the objectives and guiding values, and to those wishing to endow land or property for the benefit of Bro Ddyfi.
