Work begins on Caerphilly shipping container market

9th May 2023 | Jack Oliver

Work has begun on a new market in Caerphilly made up of shipping containers, with the project expected to be completed in October or November.

58% of the project’s funding will be provided by the Welsh Government, which is providing a grant of £2.09m and a loan of £600,000.

The remainder of the cost comes from the local council and the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund.

The project, called Ffos Caerffili, is the first in Caerphilly Borough Council’s 2035 regeneration masterplan, and will create 28 units for retail, leisure, and food and beverage operators.

An outdoor space for events will also be developed.

Welsh minister for climate change, Julie James, said: “Our transforming towns programme continues to deliver great results in our commitment and ambition to revitalise town centres across Wales, putting them at the heart of everything we do.”
