Dyffaty Park, Burry Port


We worked on behalf of Carmarthenshire County Council’s Regeneration Department to create a huge industrial estate for letting.

The Brief

After the development of a similar site in Burry Port, Dyfatty Marshes was opened for redevelopment by Carmarthenshire County Council. With a £2.2 million Objective One grant from the Welsh Assembly Government the site needed a concept master-plan for 120,000 sq ft of industrial accommodation. This included an individual unit of 22,000 square ft on one of the available plots.

The council needed all aspects to be handled efficiently, especially aspects such as the submission of the scheme for planning approval.

Our Solution

After the masterplan was approved, we successfully secured planning permission for the project. The site was then procured under a design and build contract, where we then remained as advisors to the client.

This allowed us to effectively monitor works, keeping the build on track and within budget.

Carmarthenshire County Council was delighted with the delivery of the first units and have made them available to let with a hugely positive response from retailers.

We have since been commissioned again by the council to provide advice on a 15,000 sq ft project involving similar units, next to the Dyfatty Park site. We aim to provide the same level of service, producing the design of the units and remaining as advisors for the client during the project.

Lawray has been a partner of the Corporation of the Church House for over 20 years and in that time has been heavily involved in several large refurbishment projects. The team’s knowledge and skills have proved invaluable in the areas of design, planning and project administration. When redeveloping a listed property, Lawray have ensured that they treat the architecture with sympathy whilst producing space that is effective for modern day requirements. Lawray continues to work closely with our in-house team on forthcoming projects and we would have no hesitation in recommending their work to others.
