The UK’s long industrial history means that there is a substantial legacy of former industrial land ripe for regeneration. South Wales was once an area synonymous with heavy industry – with the plant at Ebbw Vale once the largest steelworks in Europe. The plant survived until closure five years ago – and today the site is home to one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects. This programme looks at the project to prepare the site for development.
