Newport stands at the gateway between England and Wales.

It’s based along the M4 corridor and is just 12 miles from Cardiff.

The city has great transport links and is on the main train line between Cardiff and London, with direct rail services to lots of other major UK cities.

Cardiff and Bristol international airports are also both within an hour’s drive.

Community ward profiles


The census is managed by the Office for National Statistics. 

It happens every 10 years and gives us a picture of all the people and households in England and Wales.

The last census was held in 2021. 

We use the data from the census to help decide how services are planned and funded in your local area.

You can see the results of the census on the ONS website

Newport community profiles

We also have our Newport community profiles.

They give us local information about Newport's people and communities.

These can be viewed on the Newport Atlas website.
