Ffos Caerffili – Caerphilly town centre’s much-anticipated container style market – will open its doors to the public on Friday 5th April.

Construction problems caused by recent periods of heavy rain led to the delay of the planned opening in mid-March, but much work has been done over recent weeks to get the project back on track.

Cllr Jamie Pritchard, CCBC’s Deputy Leader, visited the impressive facility today to view progress and was delighted with the results.

“Ffos Caerffili has encountered a number of challenges, which have now been overcome. The facility is nearly ready to open and there is a real sense of anticipation in the town. We are creating a venue where businesses can thrive, right in the heart of the town centre. Promoting and developing new business opportunities is absolutely critical and we're looking forward to opening the doors".

The community-focused market will be a vibrant focal point for the town and forms part of the Caerphilly Town 2035 Placemaking Plan, with funding support from Welsh Government’s Transforming Town’s initiative.

The scheme has been supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda.

Ffos Caerfilli will open its doors on Friday 5th April at 9am.
