Coed Darcy – From brownfield to model development, Bristol

About this event

The Llandarcy Oil Refinery in South Wales was opened in 1921. The site was run by BP and in the mid 80's stopped most of their operations.

In 2008, the site was acquired by developers, St Mowdens, with the aim of remediating the site and developing it into a community with 4,000 homes, schools, leisure space, commercial space and sports facilities. The development is one of Europe's largest brownfield sites and one of the most important regeneration projects underway in South Wales.

Tim Budd of Atkins will talk us through the extensive remediation work that has been completed over the last decade, and what the future holds for Coed Darcy. Examples of remedial work include the removal of over 100km of pilelines and cables, and the recovery and recycling of over 850,000 litres of oil!
