Cwmbran Centre records 1.5 million increase in footfall

Cwmbran Centre in South Wales recorded an 8% increase in footfall in 2022 – that is 1.5 million more visits last year than in 2021.

LCP Group, the national commercial property and investment company, acquired the centre in Cwmbran at the beginning of last year and has since implemented a programme to improve the diversity of tenants. In the last 12 months, LCP’s experienced team have attracted 22 new stores – both high street names and independent stores – including Loungers, which took over a former unit that had lain empty for more than ten years.

Since taking ownership, the centre has 95% occupancy, its highest rate in the past five years. Alex Williams, of LCP, said: “A combination of intensive asset management, ensuring that we attract the right names that we are confident will do well at Cwmbran Centre, and society getting back to a more normal way of life post Covid-19 restrictions, has resulted in a bumper year for the centre.”

LCP has continued its commitment to investing in Cwmbran, with the acquisition of the neighbouring prime leisure complex, Leisure@Cwmbran. The dominant leisure facility in the South Wales town, has an eight-screen Vue cinema, 20-lane Hollywood Bowl complex plus six restaurant units, including a Harvester, German Doner Kebab and Pepe’s Peri Peri. A tanning salon, gym and an independent college are also on the site.
