Kenfig National Nature Reserve update

Following the end of Bridgend County Borough Council’s management lease of Kenfig National Nature Reserve, Natural Resources Wales and the Kenfig Corporation Trust (KCT) who own the site, have been in negotiations about the potential of NRW taking on the long-term lease.

After many months of lengthy discussions, both parties have agreed that we cannot proceed with a lease agreement.  The possibility of pursuing a Nature Reserve Agreement for the future management of the site is being explored.

Both parties remain committed to managing the conservation of this protected site to safeguard the many rare species of plants, insects, birds and animals that live there, and to ensure it maintains its national nature reserve status.
