Work has started this week on an exciting new development that will lead to the creation of a landmark building in the heart of Caerphilly Town centre.
The demolition of the former Post Office building on Twyn Square is now underway to make way for a brand new Library and Customer Services Centre for Caerphilly.
The impressive new building will boast a range of facilities that will benefit all sections of the community. The main attraction will be a state-of-the-art library offering a wide range of resources for people of all ages including books, DVDs, CDs, games as well as community space, Internet access and reference materials.
The new facility will also include a Customer Services Centre where residents can access a wide range of council services under one roof.
Representatives from Caerphilly county borough council and partners involved in the scheme visited the site this week to see the start of works.
Cllr Ron Davies, CCBC cabinet member for regeneration said, "This scheme will deliver a much needed community facility in the heart of Caerphilly town centre. It will be a new landmark building located on the historic Twyn Square opposite our magnificent castle and the services on offer will be of benefit to the whole community."
"This development is yet another example of our commitment to the regeneration of our town centres and it's great to see that work is progressing at the site. We now look forward to seeing the scheme come to fruition over the coming months as anticipation builds for the opening of this fantastic new facility," he added.
This latest scheme closely follows the success of similar developments in Risca and Bargoed. The Risca Palace and Hanbury Chapel schemes have seen the creation of similar shared library and customer services facilities and the sites are proving hugely popular with the local community.
