Following guidance from Welsh Government, we've produced specific guidance and downloadable resources to help you prepare to re-open your business. This underpins the 5-step approach published by UK Government.

Please continue to visit our Newsroom for the latest information. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

We are pleased to announce the re-release of the Targeted Regeneration Investment (TRI) funding programme. This funding aims to support regeneration projects that promote economic regeneration - creating jobs, enhancing skills and employability, and creating the right environment for businesses to grow and thrive- focussing on areas most in need.

Carmarthenshire’s priority areas are:

  • Llanelli town centre
  • Ammanford town centre

This funding is aimed at bringing vacant commercial properties back in to use. 

This funding will address the requirement for retail and commercial floor space that meets the needs of businesses by providing gap funding for vacant commercial building occupiers and owners to enhance building frontages and bring vacant commercial floor space back into beneficial business use.  

There are short timescales linked to the potential funding, therefore if you are interested and have a deliverable project within our priority areas, please complete the expression of interest (EOI) form (.pdf) and return by midday on Friday 3rd July 2020. If the team believe that your project will be deliverable and of benefit to the target area(s) they will contact you for an informal discussion between 6th and the 8th July 2020.

If you require any further information prior to submitting an EOI, please contact Tessa Peregrine via email -
