Swansea Council has an ambitious vision for a city that is a vibrant, 24-hour, living, working and leisure destination.
The city and surrounding areas, like everywhere across the UK, have been impacted by the events of the past 18 months but the council remains more committed than ever to delivering its regeneration agenda.
Even with the backdrop of a global pandemic, the council and its partners have been hard at work bringing this vision to life. Several schemes are under way, including phase one of the £135m Copr Bay project in the city centre. When complete, it will be home to a 3,500-capacity arena, with space for leisure and hospitality businesses, a coastal park, new homes and parking.
Work has been completed on The Kingsway too – a £12m investment to create a green, pedestrian and business-friendly public realm.
The council is also proud to announce the selection of Urban Splash as its preferred development partner to become part of the city’s £1bn regeneration story and deliver strategic council-owned development sites in and around the city centre.
A strong emphasis on lifestyle, environmental consciousness, strong placemaking and digital connectivity make Swansea more attractive than ever, proven by the continued levels of investment coming into the city across all sectors.
A combination of these major new developments and the continued regeneration of the city centre means Swansea is poised to bounce back stronger than ever.
