Gwent business park offers free office and workshop space to South Wales flood victim firms

A South Wales business park is coming to the aid of firms left high, but not dry, in recent floods by offering free space to those affected in the area.

Mamhilad Park Estate, in Pontypool, is throwing its vacant office and workshop doors open in a bid to help alleviate some of the problems caused by flooding in places such as nearby Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Mamhilad Park Estate Chief Executive Officer, James Crawford, said the Torfaen business park has limited non-refurbished space readily available and wanted to ‘do its bit’ to help.

James said: “Having been across to Pontypridd, walked the streets this week and witnessed firsthand the devastation and sheer damage caused by the floods, we decided to help in the one way that we can by offering our vacant space to those affected to help them to get back on their feet.

“Businesses needing space can get in touch and can move into offices at Mamhilad Park Estate right away. We have space set up and ready to go.

“We have office and workshop space available free to those affected. All that the flood affected occupiers will need to pay for is their rates, utilities and broadband for three months during the time that they are here.”

James said that the company had been in contact with Rhonda Cynon Taf CBC who had welcomed their initiative and would publicise the offer to those affected.

The park, home to 150 businesses employing 1,600 people, is equipped with a restaurant, gym and an award-winning children’s nursery on site. The park, which offers free parking, is served by a super-fast fibre internet network
