New development at Pencoed Technology Park

It has been announced that a major new industrial scheme is to be developed at the Pencoed Technology Park.

The plan for the site, which sits just outside the border of Bridgend County Borough, was recently approved by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council. It will see the construction of an all-new 46,100 sq ft unit which can either be used to house a single business, or divided to accommodate more than one.

The plan has been designed by Deeside Regeneration with the support of Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund, and also includes associated cycle and car parking facilities.

Commenting on the news, Deputy Minister for Economy and Transport Lee Waters said: “This development will provide modern business space. It will also support our commitment to create opportunities and secure lasting economic change for our communities.

“I am delighted we have been able to support this important project, and I look forward to seeing it progress and help make the area a more prosperous place to live and work.”

The Leader, Cllr Huw David added: “With fast access to the nearby M4 motorway and an existing business park infrastructure in place, this promises to offer high-quality industrial premises, and will become an important source of local employment.

“Construction is due to begin on site in April, and I am looking forward to seeing the completion of the new industrial unit later this year.”
