Llanelli Waterside

The Llanelli Coast Joint Venture between the Welsh Assembly Government and Carmarthenshire County Council is a flagship partnership delivering an ambitious Regeneration strategy for Llanelli Waterside.

The strategy includes proposals for a number of locations across this part of the South West Wales seaboard, many of which have been completed.

We’re creating a vibrant and modern space in which people can enjoy working, living and playing. An environment where stylish and contemporary office buildings, attractive housing developments, as well as lively restaurants, bars, theatres and a wealth of other cultural and leisure facilities, sit comfortably together around expanses of sparkling water and lush green parkland.

Huge progress has been made on many of these sites including major infrastructure investment, the coastal link road; residential development at North Dock and Machynys; the Nicklaus designed golf course; the Dragon 24 Office Development at North Dock; the renovation of the harbour and the construction and 100% let of Dyfatty Park – all at Burry Port.

Areas of Llanelli Waterside also attract property development grants via the South West Wales Property Development Fund for speculative office and industrial developments.

Llanelli Waterside enjoys an ideal location with a number of prime attractions close by. These include the Jack Nicklaus designed Golf Course and Country Club at Machynys; a state-of-the-art rugby stadium for the world famous Llanelli Scarlets; Pembrey Country Park and the seven-mile-long award winning Cefn Sidan beach; and Ffos Las Racecourse which consistently attracts visitors in their droves. The course – the first one to open in the UK for almost 80 years – has been widely praised by the racing fraternity.

Close by, Parc Trostre and Parc Pemberton are firmly established as prime shopping destinations visited by people from across South Wales, and plans are progressing for a multi-million-pound retail and leisure development in Llanelli town centre as well as a £14 million theatre and arts complex.

Controlled development and investment has been the cornerstone of the regeneration of the area coupled with visible returns for those wishing to invest here – projects are designed, delivered and realised in a true partnership between investor and the Joint Venture.


The activities of the Llanelli Waterside Joint Venture have dramatically enhanced the land and seascapes of a part of the world that is often referred to as a “hidden gem”.
