Mr. Black visited the centre in Penllergaer today to see the plans for himself. The centre have put in a bid to the Big Lottery for funding to enhance and develop a wet meadow habitat to provide additional habitats for otter, possibly water vole, some bird species and aquatic invertebrates, build a sensory trail so people with sensory impairments can enjoy Llys Nini, to develop the community heritage orchard, build a heritage based adventure playground for children to enjoy and encourage them to play out doors and to plant a living maze.

 

“The animal centre at Llys Nini has already expanded considerably since I last visited it,” said Mr. Black. “It is the biggest RSPCA Animal Centre in Wales and is using a number of government schemes to provide training and work experience opportunities for many local people. They estimate that they are putting £1.2m into the local economy each year.

 

“The proposals for expansion are very ambitious but realistic. They will enable the local RSPCA to make full use of a large site in a sustainable an environmentally sensitive way, as well as providing a new visitor attraction for the local community. I am more than happy to offer my support.”
