Planning Status

All schemes are identified in Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council’s adopted Place Making Plan as key regeneration projects

The new Placemaking Plan identifies transformational projects offering investment opportunities in the heart of Merthyr Tydfil town centre.

The new bus interchange provides a catalyst for redefining the lower High Street and the redevelopment of the rail station to deliver a key gateway to the town centre, allowing an opportunity for new retail, office or leisure uses. The acquisition by the Council of the St Tydfil’s Centre, the premier town centre retail area, provides a redevelopment opportunity of 180,000 ft2 of retail accommodation including 48 shops, 50 indoor market stalls and 25 maisonettes. The whole site provides an opportunity to diversify the retail and residential offer.
