Risca retail opportunities
Risca is situated in a beautiful location in the south east of the County Borough.
The town nestles in a wide valley surrounded by steep forested hills. It is located close to the Cwmcarn Forest, which offers something for all the family and can be explored by car, bike and on foot.
It is bordered by the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal on one side and the River Ebbw on the other.The town benefits from its close proximity to the M4 and has good rail links. A new railway station has been constructed at Risca following the re-opening of the Ebbw Valley Railway line for passenger transport and now provides commuters with an hourly service into Newport city centre.
The shops are predominately small independent retailers, giving Risca the feel of a market town. There is a Lidl food store located in the town centre and a Tesco supermarket built on a former brownfield site. This store is linked to the town centre by a footbridge over the River Ebbw.
In recent years, there has been significant new investment in the town with the former Palace Cinema building undergoing a complete redevelopment. The reconfigured building preserves the historic façade of the original cinema and now contains a library with Customer First facility.
Risca town centre has the advantage of having Tredegar Grounds Park located at its heart providing a children’s play area and also a purpose-built event site, which can be used by the local community to stage events.
