Caerphilly County Borough Council is asking residents to give their views on ambitious regeneration plans for Blackwood town and the surrounding area.

The ‘Draft Greater Blackwood Masterplan’ identifies development and regeneration opportunities in the area.  It seeks to strengthen the economy and improve cultural, environmental and social conditions for residents and visitors.  The Masterplan sets out proposed objectives to achieve this, including:

  • Protect and enhance greater Blackwood’s status as a sub-regional employment centre.
  • Establish Blackwood town centre as a sub-regional hub that is attractive, accessible and busy during the day and at night.
  • Expand and diversify the visitor economy.
  • Improve transport links within and beyond greater Blackwood.
  • Promote wellbeing by enhancing or creating sustainable community facilities.
  • Provide housing that will meet local needs in sustainable locations.

To have your say on the Draft Greater Blackwood Masterplan visit Draft Greater Blackwood Masterplan | The Caerphilly Conversation.  Paper copies of the survey are also available at public libraries in the masterplan area.  The consultation will close at midnight on Wednesday 14th February.
