Catchment Environment Wales Farming Support Conwy

Welcome to the Cefn Conwy Project

What is CEFN Conwy?

It is a project that supports land managers in the efficient management of on-farm nutrients and soil in rural Conwy, so reducing diffuse pollution.

The full project title is: Improving Catchment Environmental quality by better Nutrient management in the livestock Farming landscape.

The active phase of the project ran from May 2009 until September 2011 but the valued network of local farmers built-up during this time along with the goodwill and trust shown to project officers by the farmers and their Unions will hopefully live on long beyond the project.

The results and findings of the project are reported in a project handbook which has been uploaded onto this website and also exists in paper form and can be requested free of charge from: Nia Evans, RDP Project Development Officer, Community Development Service – Rural, CONWY County Borough Council.
