Newport House Prices & Redevelopment
Average house prices have increased by 2.54% over the past twelve months; an ostensibly steady rate of average increase which in fact masks large discrepancies between one area of Newport and another. No areas of Newport have witnessed the types of rapid house price increases that have been seen in other areas of the country, such as London or the South East.
The Newport Unlimited regeneration project was launched in 2003 and, barring a few stutters in between, it has been a great success, with large scale infrastructural improvements, particular in relation to the city’s road and rail links, leisure, commerce and residential improvements occurring across the city.

Newport Tradition & History
Newport has been inhabited since Bronze Age fishermen settled in order to exploit the fertile waters in the area. Newport’s name is derived from the Latin Novus Burgus – new borough – which seems to denote the fact that the Romans constructed a fort, Isca Augusta, at modern day Caerleon, in 75 CE.
The church that eventually became Newport Cathedral was, according to legend, constructed by Saint Gwynllyw in the 5th Century CE. Newport Castle was later built by the Normans in 1140, following their arrival in 1088-93. Newport received charters in 1314, 1385, 1426 and 1623 and served a prominent role during the famous rebellion of Owain Glendwr, when Newport Castle became one of the fortresses of which Glendwr’s general Rhys Gethin took control in 1402.
Due to its proximity to the coal and iron producing centres of the South Wales Valleys, Newport docks grew rapidly, and Newport became the country’s primary coal port and, until 1850, was bigger than nearby Cardiff. The city’s economic boom continued throughout the Victorian period and into the early 20th Century, with the Alexandra Docks (1875), the Alexandra South Docks (1892) and Newport Transporter Bridge (1906) among some of the most famous and important constructions introduced into the city during this period.
Urban sprawl became a distinctive feature of the city’s expansion as it swallowed up nearby towns and areas, such as Pillgwenlly and Lliswerry, in order to accommodate its burgeoning population.
Though the local docks were in decline even before the Great Depression struck, and local unemployment hit 34.7% in 1930, due to a relatively broad economic base Newport did not suffer the kind of economic cataclysm that hit most many places in the South Wales Valleys.
Newport prospered in the early post-war era and, though there were notable indicators of economic problems during the 1980s, further diversification of the economy allowed Newport to avoid many of the pitfalls into which many other places fell as a consequence of deindustrialisation.
