Tower Regeneration Limited (Tower), is a joint venture partnership between Tower Colliery Ltd and Hargreaves Services plc.
The Tower project will include the extraction of the remaining surface coal before fully restoring the entire colliery site with landscaping and nature conservation areas.
A community fund, the Tower fund, has also been created to support local projects. To date in excess of £160,000 has been distributed locally with over £2m expected to be distributed over the course of the project.
Tower Regeneration Limited (Tower) is a joint venture partnership between Tower Colliery Ltd and Hargreaves Services Plc, to restore the land of the former Tower Colliery site, near Hirwaun, including land remediation and surface coal extraction.
The colliery, established in 1864, has in the past been linked with nearby mines, none of which remain operational. It was purchased by the workforce in December 1994 and successfully operated until January 2008, when the last of the coal was extracted.
