The committee are working with partners to obtain funding, first for a development officer and then together to seek investment for a new building over the road on the site of the current football pavilion. A feasibility study carried out in 2011 by Cardiff University showed the need and support for a new development, this has recently been added to by the Garw Valley Garden History & Heritage Companies own feasibility study for a heritage centre and the two studies have now been incorporated into one document to take both projects forward in one building. Whilst not cast in stone, the vision is to bring to fruition a new community centre/facility In Llangeinor that offers and achieves some or hopefully all of the following: Build and own an environmentally friendly building that caters for multiple, versatile and simultaineous use. The building will incorporate  (1) a main hall and platform to stage performances and some internal sporting activities, (2)  a comfortable lounge/relaxation area, ), (3) various meeting rooms of different sizes that are well equipped, (4) a suite for learning and outreach activities (equipped with the latest ICT), A bar/café that serves users of the centre but may also trade externally (eg provide external buffets, an evening takeaway on service etc. Space(s) suited to heritage, cultural and other affinity group usage relating to arts and crafts. An office, main reception area that is a point of contact for all. Light industrial kitchen facilities to provide catering services for small and large groups and training. Consultation areas suitable for usage by external organisations such as social services, health care, credit unions, post office etc. Changing rooms equipped with modern shower facilities to house both home and away teams and officials to support Llangeinor’s sports teams. Laundry/utility area to serve the building’s various uses including washing large items (eg quilts ) for the community. Accessible male and female WC’s including outside facilities for the benefit of users of the valley community  footpath and cycleway.

The Llangeinor Ward Community Partnership is a vital and friendly group of community-minded folk who hold regular monthly meetings in the centre to discuss any issues affecting the lives of the community.
