Further investigation work is due to take place in Pontypool town centre to prepare for the development of a new cultural hub and cafe quarter.  

From Thursday 29 February - Saturday 16 March essential, specialist investigations and testing services will be taking place at the Hanbury Road public toilets block.

Public health and safety is vital and therefore, the welfare facilities will temporarily close from Thursday 29 February and reopen on Monday 18 March.

Alternative toilets will be available at: 

  • Pontypool Park, which are open between 7.30am and 5pm.

  • Pontypool Active Living Centre - Male, female, baby changing, and accessible toilets are available: between 7am and 9pm Monday – Friday; between 7am-5pm Saturday; between 7.45am - 7pm Sunday.

  • Pontypool Indoor Market – Male, female, baby changing, and accessible toilets are available: between 8am – 2pm Monday; between 8am – 5pm Tuesday – Friday; between 8am – 4pm Saturday.

The Hanbury Road public toilets are due to be converted into a new café/restaurant overlooking the Italian Gardens and Pontypool Park. Once complete, there will be two new fully-accessible public toilets on Hanbury Road, as well as toilet facilities in the café for customers.

The £9.3 million Pontypool Cultural Hub project was one of only 11 projects in Wales to receive funding from the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund, which aims to create jobs and grow the local economy.
