Ringland is both an electoral ward (district) and community (parish) of the city of Newport, South Wales.

The ward is bounded by Ringland Way to the east, the southern boundary of Llanwern High School to the south, Balfe Rd, Aberthaw Rd, Ringland Circle, Ringwood Avenue, across Chepstow Rd, Mountbatten close and behind Chiltern Close and Glanwern Grove to the west and the M4 motorway to the north.

Most of the houses and flats and shopping centre were built by the local council during the 1950s and 1960s, most of houses have generous sized gardens . Ringland is close to junction 24 of the motorway also 12 minutes drive from Newport Railway Station. Ringland has green spaces around the area including Ringland Wood run by the Woodland Trust.[2]

PLANS to transform Ringland into an "attractive, vibrant and modern" community have been submitted by Newport City Homes (NCH). The multi-million pound plans were submitted at the end of November 2017.[3]

Unemployment and crime levels in Ringland are above the national average since the decline of the Llanwern steelworks. It is home to the 5-star Celtic Manor Resort on the north side of the M4.[4] There were plans proposed in 2015 to invest in improvements to the shopping centre.[5]

In 2017 a permanent site for travellers or gypsies was created on Hartridge Farm Road. Archaeological remains dating from the Iron Age and Roman periods were found during the development.[6]
