Issue Name: National Assembly for Wales

Producer: Buckingham Covers

 

March 2006 saw the grand opening of National Assembly for Wales' new building. It faces Cardiff Bay. Royal Mail took a leap of faith that it would actually be ready on time (their miniature sheet for the Scottish Parliament was a moveable feat) and released a miniature sheet to mark the event. The texture of the miniature sheet is inspired by the roof of the new Welsh Assembly building. Each cover is postmarked in Cardiff on 1st March 2006 - St David's Day and also the day the miniature sheet was issued. It is available signed by former leader of the Labour Party, Neil Kinnock.

The Welsh Assembly Buiilding

The Welsh Assembly Building is locatd in a prominent prestigious waterfront site in Cardiff Bay. It is symbolically outward looking, with a strong national identity. The building has three levels, two of which are open to the public.

The plinth level area provides the main public access to the central hall area where you can sit and watch debates and committee sessions on TV monitors or find the informatin you need. The hall leads on to the Debating Chambers gallery, with seating for 100 members of the public and up to 30 representatives of the media. On either side of the hall is a void that reeals a courtyard at lower level. On one side of the building bridges cross this void to provide access to the Committee Room galleries. The public high level observations area has a viewing point so visitors can look down through glass windows to the chamber below to the lower level, not accessible by the general public, wihch is where the work of the Assembly takes place.
