Maindee District Centre is long overdue for a rethink and investment. It is time to radically improve the quality of the streetscape and public spaces for the well-being of our community and traders. 

Initiated in 2022, Maindee District Centre Renewal Project developed new plans and designs in consultation with local people. These plans will now form the basis for fundraising to develop further and implement a transformation of our local shopping centre, including the car park and the length of Chepstow Road between Hereford Street and the Wharf Road traffic lights.

We are now embarking on next stage plans and are looking for experienced community regeneration professionals and project staff to make it happen.

People's Assembly


During the first phase of the project we hosted 2 'Maindee People’s Assemblies' to ask ourselves, what sort of future Maindee do we want and how can we achieve it?

Maindee Unlimited consulted with people on their experiences of using the Chepstow Road shopping area and car park. This involved holding ‘People’s Assembly’ events in the library, working with year 7 students at St. Julian’s school, online surveys and lots of conversation. Some themes have stood out such as ’more trees and green’. In response to what people told us we have developed key priorities below and worked with Newport based designers Roberts Limbrick to produce suggested ways of improving the main road, car park and areas of spaces that have the potential to be more people-friendly.

Our Priorities

  • Improve the functionality of the area to better meet the needs of traders and visitors with better designed parking spaces, wider pavements and better connectivity and access along the street.
  • Create a more attractive place which supports the local economy and offers a range of spaces and activities for socialising, relaxing, gardening, recreation and play.
  • Improve the quality and safety of the environment and air by increasing trees and green space, reducing through traffic and the dominance of cars and improving access for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Design for the future a place which can adapt to a changing climate and changing behaviour - this will include better drainage, drought tolerant planting, efficient use of materials, supporting the circular economy.
