Welsh Government has agreed its funding package for the redevelopment of the former Merthyr Tydfil Bus Station site.
The circa £1m development will see the unused space transformed into a marketplace with events area, parks, and open green space.
Councillor Michelle Symonds, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “We’re delighted that this funding package has now been confirmed and the plans for the site can be realised. These are exciting times for Merthyr Tydfil Town Centre!”
Leader of the Council, Councillor Geraint Thomas, said: “We’ve taken onboard the comments of residents through two phases of consultation, and we know that residents and businesses in the locality will welcome this much anticipated addition to the Town Centre.
“I’m looking forward to seeing it become a well-used public event space and thriving marketplace.”
Contractors will be onsite from 8th January 2024 and work is expected to be completed at the end of Spring.
