‘A Foundation for Success 2018-2023’ - Regeneration Strategy for Caerphilly County Borough

‘A Foundation for Success’ seeks to provide a framework for the future regeneration of the County Borough for the next 5 years up to 2023. The document sets out strategic priorities for regeneration under four key themes:

  • Supporting People (reducing inequality, building capacity and resilience to create healthier, prosperous, cohesive communities);
  • Supporting Business (creating employment opportunities, increasing entrepreneurial activities, encouraging innovation and improving access to employment);
  • Supporting Quality of Life (providing the right physical environment for our communities that encourages them to prosper);
  • Connecting People and Places (improving connectivity locally, regionally and globally).

The Regeneration Strategy will be supported by a suite of targeted action plans and strategies aimed at capturing regeneration opportunities and developing key sites and premises throughout the County Borough.  

The Caerphilly Basin Masterplan is the first in a series of updated action plans/masterplans. It sets out the future direction of Caerphilly Town Centre and the wider Caerphilly Basin by:

  • Enhancing its role as a retail, tourist and employment centre;
  • Unlocking significant economic growth;
  • Delivering jobs and private sector investment;
  • Fulfilling its potential as a regional hub through the South East Wales Metro initiative.

The Masterplan identifies a number of projects within Caerphilly Town Centre and the wider Caerphilly Basin that could deliver substantial economic benefits, and it will provide a framework for the delivery of those projects.

Both ‘A Foundation for Success’ and the Caerphilly Basin Masterplan have been informed by engagement with stakeholders, including a public consultation exercise held in Spring 2018.

The second masterplan is the Ystrad Mynach Masterplan and this sets the future development and regeneration opportunities proposed for Ystrad Mynach and the wider area that could deliver substantial economic benefits.

The Ystrad Mynach Masterplan was approved in April 2019 following engagement with stakeholders and a public consultation exercise held early 2019.
