A Dinas Powys park will now be managed by its community council following a 99-year lease agreement confirmed by the Vale of Glamorgan council.

Under Dinas Powys Community Council's stewardship, set to involve the Friends of Seel Park Group, Seel Park is set for improvements.

There will be a deed of dedication applied, courtesy of Fields in trust, to ensure the park's long-term availability for future generations.

The decision demonstrates the Vale of Glamorgan council's commitment to collaboration, based on the belief that public spaces can be more effectively managed by local organisations.

Cllr Gwyn John, cabinet member for sports, health and wellbeing at Vale of Glamorgan Council said: "Partnership working lies at the heart of our Council's commitment to progress and prosperity.

"Through collaborative efforts, we aim to build resilient communities, drive sustainable development, and create a lasting positive impact for all.

"We are confident in Dinas Powys Community Council and Friends of Seel Park’s commitment to improving the area for the benefit of the wider community."

Friends of Seel Park Group will continue collaboration with the Dinas Powys Community Council after the transfer, focusing on facilitating nature conservation and enhancing the open space experience.
