Community Woodland Management Plan Project

This booklet provides a summary of the collaborative effort between the Dyfi FEI Cluster Group and the local communities of Forge and Machynlleth to develop a transparent woodland management plan for Coed Tŷ Gwyn to meet the needs and interests of all.

The project, which engaged 648 people across both communities, was coordinated by Coetiroedd Dyfi Woodlands and was funded through the Forest

Education Initiative Partnership Fund and Glasu’s Community Resilience Fund.

All participants were made aware of the Dyfi Biosphere, and many became interested in how such community planning could be applied to other woodlands in the Biosphere. The project was a pilot activity for the COBWEB citizen science project.

Glyndŵr’s Way study

In 2014, ecodyfi used Visit Wales grant aid to gather information about things on and near the Glyndŵr’s Way National Trail that are of interest to visitors – natural and built heritage, places to stay and shop, public transport and so on. The Report maps these assets, and will help any business that wants to develop walking tourism across Mid Wales.

The former Countryside Council for Wales used European Commission grant aid to consult people about walking routes and heritage in the Dyfi Biosphere, and then to improve selected routes. The 16 resulting walks were published, and are available to download here.

Gwres – affordable heat

Ecodyfi used grant aid from the former UK Department of Energy and Climate Change to help householders in the Dyfi Biosphere install heating from renewable sources. 21 of the 129 people that got in contact went on to install wood pellet, heat pump and/or solar heating.

Giants in the Forest

The first project branded as Dyfi Biosphere used the arts to involve people in the natural environment. From May to November 2012 three enormous heads made of willow branches and other biodegradable materials grew into a patchwork of native flowers and plants as they nestled high up in trees in Pantperthog, Machynlleth and Eglwysfach.
