The Works Ebbw Vale
When you’re looking for somewhere to live, learn, work or play, perception is all important. If you are immediately struck by the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park, if you want to be more environmentally friendly, if you see adventure waiting for you on your doorstep and if you have a strong sense of community spirit, then you’ll find it hard not to be impressed with The Works Ebbw Vale regeneration project.
A vibrant and distinctive development in the heart of Blaenau Gwent, South Wales, The Works - the regeneration project to redevelop the former Ebbw Vale steelworks site - will connect you to the greener things in life. While other developments focus solely on the structures that they create, we focus on the impact we can have on your life; whether that's through the new Learning Campus, environmentally friendly housing, sustainable development proposals or the jaw-dropping views that surround The Works Ebbw Vale, providing access to the countryside.
The speed with which The Works is being brought to market is commendable and an outstanding example of public and private sector organisations working together to bring new life to Ebbw Vale.

Ebbw Vale: The Works
Ebbw Vale: The Works has been running for over a decade since the closure of Europe's largest former steelworks. It is a regeneration scheme led by the local authority, in collaboration with the Welsh Government and has benefited from European Structural Funds. This short film tells the story of The Works, using the words of those benefitting from the investments to date, including a nurse, construction worker, parent, students and college principal; the impact on the people of Ebbw Vale is recorded , creating a ‘moment in time’. The film has been developed to enable people to 'see' the scale and quality of delivery without having to go to the site themselves.
