Caerphilly - Share Your Views On Plans For New Business Units At Ty Du, Nelson

Saturday 16th Jan 2021

Caerphilly County Borough Council is inviting residents to share their views on plans to develop new business premises at Ty Du, Nelson through a new online exhibition.

The Ty Du site, which lies immediately south of the A472 Nelson bypass, has secured significant public sector and EU funds for a sustainable mixed-use development, including new highways and access infrastructure, provision for 200 homes and 3.8HA of land for quality employment floorspace.

The first phase of development works, including the essential site preparation and construction of the enabling highways infrastructure, was completed in late 2019.  The next phase of works is being taken forward by the Council in partnership with Welsh Government and will develop approximately 1Ha of land at the south western corner of the site. The scheme will deliver the construction of 4 modern employment buildings comprising up to 1300 square metres of quality floor-space.

Each building has the potential to be subdivided into 2-3 smaller units and are designed with a high specification external façade, with a flexible internal layout to suit a range of business uses. The proposed site layout also includes generous operational space, car and cycle parking, external seating and break out areas within an attractive landscaped “courtyard” type setting, including new trees and hedgerows.

Cllr Sean Morgan, the council’s Deputy Leader, said “Caerphilly really is a great place to do business.  We hope the exciting flagship development at Ty Du will encourage new businesses into the area, as well as offering potential for the expansion of those already based in the county borough; bringing with them increased employment opportunities for local people.”

Plans for the proposed development, along with a brief feedback survey, can be viewed on the council’s website,-Nelson-New-business-units For further details on the project please contact

The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government with additional investment from the Council and Welsh Government.
