Former Pontnewydd Inn, Commercial Street, Pontnewydd, Cwmbran 4 July 2014
The latest stage in the redevelopment of the Pontnewydd Inn.
Originally the Pontnewydd Inn, its name was changed to the unfortunate "Fairces Inn" (often referred to as the "Faeces Inn"). It was never an especially salubrious hostelry, but in recent years its reputation sank even lower. Last year, a planning application to convert it into a "Class A1 Retail Unit" (I heard it was for a Tesco Express shop) was turned down. In January of this year an inspector from the Welsh "Government" was hearing an appeal. Judging from the work going on there now, the appeal was successful. Hardly surprising, as the Welsh "Government" appear willing to rubber stamp any development no matter how controversial.
