The Shire Hall is a building in Newport, south Wales which served as the County Hall for Monmouthshire until the Monmouth County Council was wound up in 1974. It continued to be used as local government headquarters until 1978 and has subsequently been converted into offices. The current buildings were erected in 1902 and extended in 1913, adding the top storey to the Shire Hall and adjoining Queen's Chambers. The buildings have been Grade-II listed since 1998[1] in recognition of their historic and architectural qualities. The Shire Hall has been described by conservationists Cadw as an impressively-designed Edwardian civic building.

In 2013 Newport County Council approved the change of use of Shire hall into 19 self-contained flats.[2] There had previously been plans by SK Design Ltd to convert the hall into 20 flats that didn't come to fruition. The hall was then sold to Secret Millionaire Jahan Abedi.[3] The four-storey building will now be converted into 11 one-bedroom apartments and seven two-bedroom flats with a reception area and a bicycle storage area.[4]
