Former Conservative politician, Michael Portillo, visited the Goods Shed in 2017.
During his visit, he looked around the derelict building and was told of the plans to regenerate it into a multi-use facility with an emphasis on its history and heritage.

Mr Portillo also met the Llanelli Male Voice Choir and clearly enjoyed listening to them perform.
Commenting on the project Mr Portillo said:
"The Goods Shed is an significant piece of Llanelli's industrial heritage, I wish the trust the very best of luck with the project."
"Finding the funding is crucial to realising the aims of this important project. I would very much like to visit the Goods Shed again, if I have the invitation to do so."
