Caerphilly county borough council has secured funding to progress the new market development in the heart of Caerphilly town centre.

The funding has been awarded as part of Welsh Governments Transforming Towns Programme and forms an exciting next step in the regeneration of Caerphilly Town Centre.

Deputy Leader of Council, Cllr Jamie Pritchard said, “This is welcome news, and demonstrates the commitment of both Caerphilly Council and Welsh Government to make significant investments in developing new business opportunities in Caerphilly.”

He continued, “We now await the outcome of the Local Planning Authority’s determination of the planning application and look ahead to the future.”

The proposed market is set to include;

  • 28 new small-scale commercial units.
  • Including 7 exciting new bars and restaurants.
  • Space for an additional 15 ‘pop-up’ market stalls for monthly markets or local festivals.
  • Space for outdoor music concerts and events.
  • Covered ‘market-hall’ style external seating areas.
  • Fronting onto Cardiff Road – helping to further improve the already successful high-street.

Caerphilly county borough council is working closely with Welsh Government and a range of other partners to deliver the ambitious multi-million pound blueprint for the town called the Caerphilly 2035 Place Making Programme.
