Local shopping centres provide valuable shops,services and facilities for communities across Cardiff, often forming both the economic and social core of a community. Many centres have declined in recent years due to various challenges, including a general shift towards car-borne shopping and the dominance of larger retail units.
The regeneration works to the centres have included:
- replacing the shopfronts
- installing integrated roller shutters
- renewing upper storey windows
- painting of buildings
- redesigning forecourt areas including new paving, trees and street furniture
