Cardiff Capital Region (CCR) has today (March 24) launched a comprehensively informative and highly-engaging new portal that brings to life the vision of CCR to reshape South East Wales – and, critically, gives an ongoing picture of the projects and investments that are re-energising all 10 unitary boroughs in a region that’s home to 1.5 million people and responsible for 50% of Welsh economic output.
This new information hub features at-a-glance City Deal project updates by sector and by county, an investments hub showcasing investment opportunities available across the region, plus the funds that are available for new projects with step by step information on how to access them. Other features include the latest news and events, an easy-to-access archive of all CCR papers and publications together with information on each of the CCR priority sectors, key areas of focus and the roles, responsibilities and remit of our governance and advisory bodies.
Suzanne Chesterton, CCR Head of Marketing and Communications said:
“The new portal is far more comprehensive than our previous website, as well as being more visual and infographic, including a colour-coded place map of all activity in every borough. We’re conscious that we have many stakeholders, each of whom needs different types of information delivered in the most engaging way – so our new portal has been designed to provide just that, with something for everyone who is interested in what the CCR is doing, the projects that we’re completing, the funding opportunities that we offer – and, crucially, the outcomes that we’re delivering in terms of investments made, private sector leverage expected and additional jobs being created, on every project in every borough.
“In creating this information hub we have worked very closely with Karolo Design who have done a super job in creating a portal that is game changing for us in the accessibility, transparency and visual appeal of information displayed.”
The new portal – www.cardiffcapitalregion.wales – is available in both English and Welsh mediums; and will be updated frequently to provide a wide-ranging and in-depth resource for all information needs.
