One Planet Council

The One Planet Council is an independent voluntary body which enables and promotes One Planet Development.

This forward-thinking planning policy provides a genuinely affordable and sustainable way for people to live and work on their own land, bringing social, economic and environmental benefits. It was adopted by the Welsh government in 2011 as part of its One Wales: One Planet scheme.

4CG (or to use it’s full name: “Cymdeithas Cynnal a Cefnogi Cefn Gwlad” or the “Society to Sustain and Support the Rural Countryside”) is a co-operative organisation set up to “advance community development through the regeneration of Cardigan and the surrounding area”.

It was set up by a small group of locals that strongly felt there were many opportunities within Cardigan to increase community cohesion, enhance our surroundings and to take small steps to help improve the local economy – and that a determined and focussed organisation could make a difference.
