Work to build four new business units in Nelson has been completed, Caerphilly County Borough Council has announced.
The new units offer a combined 1,300 square metres of floor space, with each unit able to be divided into two or three smaller units.
The new units at the Ty Du site are part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, with further investment from Caerphilly County Borough Council and Welsh Government.
The project will also see 200 new homes built in the area.
The first phase of the project, which included preparing the site and the construction of infrastructure, access roads, drainage works and more, was completed in 2019.
Deputy Leader of the council, Cllr Sean Morgan, said: “The completion of this exciting next phase of the flagship Ty Du development offers high quality space for new businesses to develop a base in the county borough or for existing companies to expand; bringing job opportunities to Nelson and the surrounding area for local people.
“Supporting our local economy has never been more important and we hope the Ty Du site will help send the message that Caerphilly County Borough is a great place to do business.”
Wales’ Economy Minister, Vaughan Gething, said: “I am delighted this important project is ready to attract businesses to these sought-after units, which are well connected to local infrastructure.
“We want to see the region capitalise on its rich economic potential and our partnership with the council on this key site will help secure lasting change for businesses and residents alike.”
