Bridgend Bridge

Town Centre Regeneration

Visitors returning to Bridgend will find a new look to the town for the 21st Century. The market town of old has gradually disappeared over the past 20 years and Bridgend County Borough Council decided that the Town was badly in need of a facelift to meet the challenges of the new Millennium.

Parts of the town centre have been designated as conservation areas and Town Improvement Grants are being offered to assist businesses who wish to renovate buildings within the town. The aim is to conserve that which is of interest and encourage businesses to design their shop frontages to an agreed standard for the town.

A new traffic flow system is now in operation and several streets have been paved in an attractive Portland stone. The pedestrianisation will make them more attractive and accessible to shoppers and visitors alike.

New signage, street furniture, greenery and improved access for events such as street fairs all help to make the town more attractive to everyone.
