S4C have announced a further commitment to north Wales by securing a 10-year extension on the lease for their Caernarfon office.
This follows on from an initial lease which was signed in 2007 and will see the channel cement its position as a fixture in the town – having had a presence in Caernarfon since the early 1980s.
S4C Chief Executive, Owen Evans said: "At a time of great change at S4C, as we move our HQ to Carmarthen, it's important that S4C can show its commitment to the whole of Wales. In addition to future locations in Carmarthen and Central Square Cardiff, I'm glad that we have been able to guarantee our presence in north Wales for a further ten years. We have 12 permanent staff working from the office, and many other staff use it on a regular basis to meet with local independent producers. We have a long historical association with Caernarfon and this deal reinforces that for the future."
On behalf of the landlord, WJ Developments (Gwynedd) Limited, Siôr Hayward, Property Director said: "Without doubt our Victoria Dock development has played a major part in the regeneration of Caernarfon and we are delighted that S4C have committed to their future at Victoria Dock and Caernarfon. The development has recently seen positive growth with the inclusion of several new tenants demonstrating it to be one of the prime office locations in North West Wales.
