Clyne Valley Community Project

Who we are:

Our website address is: https://www.clynevalleycommunityproject.uk.

The Clyne Valley Country Park owned by Swansea Council is an area of over 700 acres of land running from the sea at Black pill, Swansea and inland to Gowerton.

The Clyne Valley Community Project (CVCP) is a volunteer group set up in 2009 aiming to maintain public access to the Valley, record its history and support the natural biodiversity of the area. CVCP is a not for profit company limited by guarantee. It works closely with the Council’s Parks Department, Conservation Officers and their Rights of Way team. The Council is supportive of our aims and we appreciate their help and expertise. We also work with a number of other agencies interested in the area such as the Glamorgan Gwent Archaeological Trust, National Resources Wales, local conservation groups and local schools.
