Cambrian Mountains – call for ideas
I’m currently looking at the potential of historic farm buildings for adaptive and viable re-use as part of the Cambrian Mountains Initiative in Mid Wales. Supported by the Prince’s Regeneration Trust, the aim is to identify a range of opportunities to bring some of these properties back into use, possibly as bunkhouses, remote hostels, food and craft outlets and other suitable commercial activities, without compromising their historical integrity. One of the first tasks is to develop a set of criteria against which this potential can be gauged, in terms of planning, access, infrastructure, spatial and financial considerations. Quite a challenge!
