Rhodri Morgan, First Minister - Cydcoed projectCydcoed was one of the most successful Objective One programmes run in Wales. Managed by Forestry Commission Wales, the £18 million programme was funded by the EU (Objective One) and the Welsh Assembly Government.

More than 160 Community groups across some of the poorest areas of Wales benefited from this innovative community development project – helping them to improve their quality of life.

It used woodlands to provide new jobs and opportunities, empower communities, promote healthy recreation, education and conservation as well as improving more than 37,500 hectares of Welsh woodland and creating a further 227 hectares of new woodland.

The programme ran for 7 years from 2001-2008.



Cydcoed was a Forestry Commission Wales project funded by the European Union Objective 1 and the Welsh Assembly Government.
