Port Talbot Town Centre

Port Talbot Town Centre

The physical and economic regeneration of Port Talbot town centre will play a pivotal role in attracting new investment, and improving the environment of the waterfront area.

Port Talbot Town Centre

Funding of over £9.64m has been secured from the Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places programme. The Council's bid comprised a number of projects to be delivered working alongside key partners, including town centre housing developments providing mixed tenure and affordable housing; Parkway Integrated Transport Hub; Plaza Arts and Cultural Centre; an Employability Centre in Water Street; and new links connecting the town with the surrounding area.

The work will seek to transform the living and working environment of the town centre, and link with the recent mixed use development at Harbourside Business Park; the Harbour Way peripheral distributor road and the regeneration of Port Talbot Parkway railway station.
