William Powell, Welsh Liberal Democrat Spokesman on Rural Affairs, has called on the Welsh Government to investigate funding sources from the European Union to support key rural regeneration projects such as the reopening of railway stations at Bow Street, Ceredigion and St. Clears, Carmarthenshire.

William Powell, Assembly Member for Mid and West Wales, said:

"European Union funds play a vital role in the West Wales economy, and I have called on the Minister for Local Government and Communities to proactively seek out funding opportunities for key rural regeneration projects such as the reopening of railway stations across rural Wales.

Projects like the Bow Street park & ride, along with St. Clears, have the potential to provide a massive positive impact on their surrounding communities. Not only can they reduce the stress and pressures of commuting, but they are able to stimulate much needed rural regeneration."
