Ambitious ideas set out in the Caerphilly Town 2035 vision

March 21, 2021

Caerphilly town centre is an established tourism destination, is well connected to Cardiff and the wider region, and is a gateway to stunning landscape.

With the town about to receive significant investment, with Cadw transforming the Castle into a tier one destination and the South Wales Metro committed to enhancing the town’s connectivity by providing six trains per hour between Caerphilly and Cardiff by December 2023. The town is therefore an area of great opportunity… and there are big ambitions for it.

The purpose of the Caerphilly Town 2035 is to provide Caerphilly County Borough Council with an integrated framework for the strategic redevelopment of Caerphilly town centre. Setting out the aspirations for the next 15 years, it identifies a clear set of projects that can been progressed and implemented over the short, medium and long term, to guide growth and help make Caerphilly an attractive place to live, work and invest.

“People’s safety in the current climate is of course very much at the forefront of everyone’s minds, but the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated significant shifts that were already happening in town centres. It’s vital for our future prosperity that we are well placed and prepared to embrace new ways in which people will live, work and travel – standing still is not an option.”
