BMX Bike Tracks Park

Llynfi BMX approached the Reach team at BCBC, to apply for the Community Feasibility fund, for a study that would assist the Group in their consideration of a Community Asset Transfer of the former Coegnant Colliery Site, which has been abandoned for many years.

Llynfi BMX Racing Club offers opportunities for children, young people and adults to participate in BMX Racing at a National Standard Track. This includes open track sessions, coaching sessions, training sessions and racing up to Regional level. Participants can loan BMX race bikes and full-face helmets from the club, who also offer pathways into the Sport.

Currently there are barely any outdoor play and sports facilities in Caerau and the Llynfi Valley that are open access and provide the opportunities for children and young people to feel safe, be active, enjoy socialising and have fun together in their community.

The feasibility study will include consultation with local young people, development options for the site, consideration of various elements such as floodlighting, a standalone building including toilets and changing facilities, as well as costings for the acquisition and development of the site and the identification of potential capital funds to deliver the project, presented in a report that will inform future funding bids.
