Ryder Cup legacy for Tredegar House

An improved and extended car park will be created at one of Newport’s most high profile and historic tourist attractions thanks to the Ryder Cup.

The city council’s planning committee has granted planning permission for the new car park and coach facilities at Tredegar House which will act as a park and ride location during next year’s tournament.

The works, which are being funded by the Welsh Assembly Government, will see the main car park resurfaced and a new coach area created, providing much needed improvements to the historic venue’s parking facilities.

Councillor Matthew Evans, leader of the council, said:

”The new car park at
Tredegar House will be a great asset for one of our most high profile and popular tourist attractions and is a prime example of how hosting the Ryder Cup in Newport will leave a permanent and positive legacy in our city.

“It is the latest in a range of infrastructure projects in our city ahead of the Ryder Cup next year. Projects such as the works at
Tredegar House, improvements to the Coldra and the refurbishment of the Transporter Bridge will leave a lasting legacy for Newport residents and businesses that will have benefits way beyond 2010.”

  1. The planning for the event seems to be generating a little controversy online - what is the general sentiment on the ground in Wales?
