Ecodyfi's Sustainable Tourism Project began in June 2001, employing a part-time member of staff to develop sustainable and community tourism in the valley, to promote the valley as a 'green' tourism destination and to establish the first tourism association for the area - "Twristiaeth Dyfi Tourism".
Tourism Growth Area
During that year, the Dyfi Valley was established as a "Tourism Growth Area", as part of a development initiative designed by the Wales Tourist Board to stimulate tourism investment in specific parts of Wales.
Having achieved this status, the local tourism industry, together with ecodyfi, WTB, WDA and the local authorities, commissioned an Action Plan detailing how sustainable tourism development should be achieved in the Dyfi Valley.
Ecodyfi is taking the lead role in delivering the programme locally, securing the required funds from public and private sources and developing the networks that will translate the TGA's vision into a future reality.
Cycling and cycle tourism
Together with those with interests in cycling and cycle tourism in the Dyfi Valley, we have also produced a draft Cycling Review and Strategy for Action. Click here to view as a Word document [197kB].
This is a consultation document at this stage - so please let us have your additions and comments. It is currently available in English only.
