A number of new business units have recently popped up in the Rhondda, and it’s said they could be snapped up pretty quickly.
Over the past year or so workers have been on site at the previously unused land off Wellington Street, Robertstown, to construct 20 modern commercial units for businesses in the area.
This week Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council provided an update on the progress regarding the development at the site, and said it has already received significant enquiries from a number of potential future tenants.

Site clearance took place during early 2020 to enable contractor R&M Williams to get the project underway last year.
The construction phase is continuing to make progress, and the buildings are now starting to take shape. All structural steel has been erected, and the floor slabs are now complete.
The majority of the roof works have also been completed, with external and internal construction of walls now underway to a number of the plots. The team have also began cladding works across several of the buildings.

Councillor Robert Bevan, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Enterprise, Development and Housing, said: “I’m pleased the modern unit development in Robertstown continues to make progress, as the council delivers sustainable economic growth and new jobs locally – while bringing a key employment site back into use as outlined in the Local Development Plan.
“This update follows quickly on from the recent announcement that the council has secured a tenant for its brand new business unit at Parc Coed-Elái in Coed Ely.
“The building was completed in January 2021, and also benefitted from significant £2.58m funding from the European Regional Development Fund, with the council leading on a Joint Venture scheme with Welsh Government for that project.
“It’s also very positive news that the council has already received tremendous interest from potential tenants for the Robertstown units, giving us further confidence that there is need and demand for these business units locally.
“With this development made up of 20 units, the council could accommodate one tenant or a number of tenants across the site – depending on need.
“The council will provide a further update on the development in Robertstown as new landmarks are reached on site.
“I’d like to thank local residents for their continued cooperation as the development progresses towards completion.”
The business units were made possible after the council secured £3.36m funding from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
