The main takeaways:

  • The vacancy rate decreased in Wales in all three location types (Retail parks, high streets and shopping centres) that LDC track and has done so since 2013.
  • Across Wales, the vacancy rate for leisure premises is lower than for retail premises (following the same trend as GB as a whole).
  • The proportion of independent retailers in towns has increased overall from 54% to 58%, although there is a large variation across towns.

This report also addresses the following questions:
