Following 5 years of careful consultations, considerations and discussions to see Merthyr Tydfil house a major leisure resort, the Planning Application for The Rhydycar West development will be submitted this summer.
The exciting project aims to bring the town a game-changing development involving a tropical indoor water park, luxury hotels and the UK’s longest indoor snow centre comparable to the largest in Europe, alongside guest lodges, an adventure centre and the ever-popular glamping experience.
Rhydycar West will continue to openly engage with the local community encouraging them to share their ideas, provide feedback and offer them the opportunity to find out more about this significant addition to the town and the valleys region. Marvel, the company behind the project, have invested heavily in the pre-planning, surveys and detailed studies of the land, along with its impact on the town and on its surrounding area.
A representative of Rhydycar West said, “Issues like ecology, and the highly important heritage and historic sites and features on the land have all been carefully considered. We hope the people of Merthyr will get involved, air their views and get behind us to bring this amazing opportunity to South Wales – to the Valleys in particular”
Due to current pandemic restrictions, a digital approach is being planned for the public consultation which will ensure accessibility is a priority. All members of the public are very welcome to engage with the consultation team.

Lyn Williams, a local businessman who’s responsible for managing the public consultation summed up the latest news “Coming out of the current pandemic, Rhydycar West could be the remedy to our struggling economy in Merthyr Tydfil, benefitting it massively in many different ways. This is a fantastic step forward for our town and we’re excited to start an engagement process with the local community and statutory consultees”.
