Land Regeneration Network celebrates first year success

The first year's successes enjoyed by a unique all-Wales Land Regeneration Network, led by Cardiff University, have been welcomed by Welsh Assembly Ministers.

Membership currently stands at roughly 1250 individuals from about 890 companies and organisations in Wales - the majority of which are SMEs. Awareness of the LRN and its activities continues to grow, evident through the lively participation at our networking events, significant interest in the website and its resources, and demand for the support services offered by the Centre through the Network projects".

Gwyn Griffith, Land Reclamation Director of the WDA, and Chair of the LRN's Industrial Advisory Board commented: "In its first year, the LRN has added significantly to the support available to these sectors for environmental business development in Wales. The timely and reliable high-quality information resource and business networking events provided by the LRN have contributed to the growing demand for clear technical information in the environmental sector and will continue to provide assistance to the whole of Wales through th
