Monmouthshire shoppers are being encouraged to support their local businesses with free weekend parking being offered in the approach to Christmas.

The council has once again announced it will provide free weekend parking in all Council-owned car parks from Saturday 5th December until, and including, Boxing Day. Head down to your local high street to take advantage of the fantastic array of local businesses selling everything from handmade gifts to locally sourced produce all in time for the big day. The offer of free parking in the three towns (Abergavenny, Chepstow and Monmouth) is hoped will encourage everyone to shop local.

Councillor Jane Pratt, cabinet member with responsibility for car parks, said: "We're pleased to once again offer free weekend parking to our residents, especially in light of the challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the perfect opportunity to safely visit your local retailers and I have no doubt you'll be surprised with all the fantastic bargains and unique gift ideas you can find right on your doorstep. This is also a great opportunity to support your friends and neighbours who run businesses across the county."

This notice will expire on 26th December 2020

The Grange University Hospital will be opening, ahead of schedule, on November 17th 2020 to help us respond to winter season pressures and a potential second wave of Covid-19.

The new hospital based in Llanfrechfa, Cwmbran has received over £360m Welsh Government funding. The 60 acre site will have a 471 bed capacity and feature a 24 hour specialist assessment facility, intensive care facilities, comprehensive diagnostic facilities, inpatient beds for major emergencies and complex surgery and theatres.

When the new hospital opens a range of services will remain at the Royal Gwent and Nevill Hall hospitals, with inpatient and outpatient care, including diagnostic tests, therapies, minor injuries treatment, and midwifery-led birthing services available across the Health Board. The Royal Gwent and Nevill Hall hospitals will join Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr, Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan, St Woolos, Chepstow and County Hospitals to provide a network of hospitals able to provide the majority of hospital based care for our local communities. These hospitals (or home) will also be where patients will be transferred once they have stabilised from a critical illness and discharged from The Grange University Hospital.

As NHS services change across Gwent, it is vitally important that residents understand how they will access these services in the future. Therefore a (bilingual English and Welsh) leaflet has been developed which will be delivered in early November by Royal Mail to every household prior to the opening of The Grange University Hospital and as the wider changes in the system take effect. This leaflet will also be available in Easy read, Audio and other languages identified for the different communities across Gwent.

A digital version of the leaflet can be found on:

Monmouthshire County Council has issued an update on the traffic and social distancing measures introduced in Monmouth as part of its work to combat the spread of COVID-19.

The council's Chief Executive Paul Matthews said: "This year has been difficult for everyone in Monmouthshire due to the effects of the pandemic, and it is expected that the challenges will continue into the Christmas period. The COVID-19 pandemic has served up very difficult problems for families, voluntary organisations, businesses and governments alike.

"In Monmouth these issues have been compounded by the significant improvement scheme taking place in Agincourt Square, which has required traffic restrictions on Monnow Street in addition to the requirement of creating a safe environment for retailers and shoppers. It will be well known that the council has over recent months piloted some new ideas in Monnow Street, including new road layouts, removal of some on-street parking and a dedicated cycle lane," explained Paul Matthews.

"Trials of this nature are always going to be contentious and divide opinion, but they were always going to be time-limited. The work in Agincourt Square is due to be completed on October 19th, when the road surface will be renewed. This will then give us the opportunity to reintroduce two-way traffic. This is our intention.

"The future of Monnow Street will need to be considered again because the nature of successful high streets are changing. Any thinking around permanent one-way traffic or pedestrianisation will need to be accompanied with wider infrastructure improvements in and around the town and will include public consultation.

"It is therefore our intention to return to two-way traffic on completion of the works in Agincourt Square. We will look to see how we can retain some wider paving areas because COVID-19 will be with us for a while yet . We have to preserve social distancing wherever possible to ensure the town is as COVID secure as possible. We are also very serious about promoting Active Travel, so this will continue to be at the forefront of our thinking.

"As we approach Christmas it's more important than ever before that we all support Monmouth's businesses, and those in all our towns and villages. The pandemic is still with us and neighbouring local lockdowns have already had an effect on businesses in Monmouthshire. We have a second phase of our 'Shop Local' campaign launching soon, which will encourage us all to buy everything we need for Christmas loca

Mitchel Troy recycling centre in Monmouth reopening


Monmouthshire County Council has announced that Mitchel Troy recycling centre will be reopening from Tuesday 15th September. Members of the council have taken this decision after detailed plans were put into place to ensure that the personnel and resources were available to reopen the centre safely, complying with Welsh Government's COVID-19 regulations and guidance.

The approach taken by the residents of Monmouthshire to the management of waste and recycling throughout the COVID period has been outstanding. Overall levels of waste have fallen and recycling rates, particularly at the two household recycling centres that have remained open - Llanfoist and Five Lanes - has increased by nearly 10% on the same period a year ago.

Councillor Jane Pratt, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, said: "We now feel able to re-open Mitchel Troy recycling centre near, Monmouth, and will do so from Tuesday 15th September. The booking system that has worked so well throughout the COVID period will be employed at Mitchel Troy. Residents will have to book to enter the site which will be running on a much smaller capacity so we can ensure residents and staff are safe at all times. Bookings can be made online from the end of this week for slots next week."

Peter Fox, Leader of Monmouthshire County Council, said: "I'm pleased to see this positive step. Our climate change, sustainability and carbon reduction policy commitments remain strong and I am happy that we can now open up a third centre to improve journey times for residents. I would stress however that recycling is the priority and we will be managing both the numbers using the site and what is coming into the site very closely"

Details on how to book can be found at Residents who are not online are advised to phone 01633 644644 to make a booking once Mitchel Troy recycling centre reopens from September 15th.

"Please remember that if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19, please do not visit the centres. Do observe social distancing when you visit, and take your own gloves or hand sanitiser with you," said Councillor Pratt. "It's also asked that you pre-sort your recycling before you leave home to help reduce time on site, and remember your permit or proof of address."

Larger items of recycling can also be collected from your kerbside by Homemakers on 01873 857618. For further details regarding what items can be collected and charges visit
