Torfaen Leisure Trust (TLT) formed in 2013. TTLT developed a 5 year Business Plan and within that plan TLT have set out its three Key Aims, these are:PlanTo Increase participation (More People, More Active More Often to benefit their health) To Increase Income to sustain TLT into the future and; to provide Value for Money.
TLT were clear that the achievement of the Key Aims would require investment in facilities. The CEO of TLT Sally Church had a vision for developing Cwmbran Stadium in the area’s of health and fitness, new children’s activities and a centre catering for all ages.
The £1.7m development of Cwmbran Stadium commenced in December 2014 and involved the development of four key areas which was developed in two phases. Phase 1 included the conversion of the old kitchen and café to a 75 station fitness suite; conversion of a four court sports hall to a 500sqm play and 19 wall climbing facility, the largest in South East Wales. A new café to support this area was created and the reception and atrium were refurbished to give a clear new identity to Cwmbran Stadium. The second phase involved converting the central grass football pitch to a dedicated 3G surface for full size football, 5 a-side and a dedicated futsal courts.
