Section VI: Complementary information
This project will create a flagship ‘Dyfi Wildlife Centre’ on the banks of the Dyfi River on Cors Dyfi Reserve, 1 of the few lowland peat bog habitats remaining in Wales.
A centre based on astute environmental and sustainable technologies with carbon-positive performance, it will pull together all the amenities of the current Dyfi Osprey Project under one roof, giving a far richer and immersive experience for visitors and volunteers alike.
The centre will be developed and built from the outset based on community involvement and participation. From consultation and decision-making to the actual construction and operation, the community will have a stake at every stage.
Showcasing the reserve's rich biodiversity, including the Dyfi ospreys, a team of staff and 200 volunteers will communicate the cultural, industrial and natural heritage of the Dyfi River for the first time in a pioneering, flagship building attracting 60 000 visitors annually.
We anticipate this centre winning industry (RICS etc) awards and be a focus of keen media attention for years to come — for example, Welsh news stories, Springwatch, Countryfile, etc.
