Llanelli’s Tyisha ward is the focus of a multi-million-pound regeneration project that is set to transform the area.

Tyisha has been identified as one of the most deprived areas in the country, with both socio-economic and environmental challenges. The Transforming Tyisha project looks to address these, following consultation with residents and businesses within the ward.

Tyisha is seen as an area of strategic importance, providing a vital link between Llanelli town centre and Pentre Awel.

The ambitious masterplan to transform the area will look to build new housing and facilities which meet the needs of the community, improve the environment and tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

The Transforming Tyisha community steering group which includes the Council and various partners including Dyfed-Powys Police and Llanelli Town Council is driving forward the project.
