Richard Hayward Properties has let the final office unit at its regeneration of the old Globe Hotel in Crane Street, Pontypool town centre to IEN Referee Services, which provides professional football match referees to games across the UK.

The £500,000 renovation project was undertaken with the help of an EU-backed Townscape Heritage Initiative Grant.

RHP has converted the former public house, which had been redundant for more than two years, bringing it back into active commercial use as a ground floor retail unit of 1,830 sq ft, two offices of 500 sq ft and 800 sq ft respectively which are both now let, plus three flats all of which are now tenanted.
