Evans Halshaw Newport is to remain open, after it was announced that several sites will close late last year.

Evans Halshaw has 118 locations across the UK and is a brand of Pendragon PLC, the UK’s second largest motor seller.

A spokesman confirmed that the company is planning on closing “a small number” of satellite Vauxhall sites, but the dealership in Newport’s is not among them.

He said: “Following proposals by Vauxhall to revise its future distribution strategy, Pendragon has agreed to the closure of a small number of Evans Halshaw Vauxhall sites, predominantly in satellite locations.

“Pendragon has now entered a period of consultation with affected team members, and we will work with them to identify possible alternative roles across the Pendragon Group.”
