Bridgend Town Centre Masterplan

To ensure that Bridgend town centre expands its retail offer and fulfils its potential as a thriving, vibrant, and accessible market town.

Bridgend town centre has undergone some major improvements to the public realm over recent years, with the aim of enhancing its attractiveness and creating an environment that is better able to encourage inward investment from the private / commercial sector.

Bridgend town centre has the potential to significantly increase its retail function, with scope to raise its performance levels and position in the retail hierarchy. Significant public sector investment will be made in the town centre in the immediate future through the £9m European Convergence Programme. At the same time, the Elder Yard development will strengthen the historic town centre core. The purpose of the Masterplan is to harness the potential of this investment to provide a catalyst for future commercial development and growth in retail capacity.

The Masterplan for Bridgend town centre, as Supplementary Planning Guide (SPG), allows for a planned approach to development and inward investment by:

  • creating a 'vision' for the area and prioritises actions to deliver this;
  • identifies key development opportunities including important sites and gateways; and
  • ensures that any proposed new development outside the retail core supports rather than competes with the retail core.
