Views invited on latest Swansea regeneration plans
A series of city centre streets are set for a major face-lift.
The regeneration plans being considered by Swansea Council could be completed by the end of next year, and will also improve the way they connect with each other.
Castle Bailey Street, the College Street/Welcome Lane junction and Grove Place to Pleasant Street, including Dynevor Place, have all been earmarked for improvements.
The proposals also incorporate plans for a city centre cycle network, which will be off-road and away from traffic to be suitable for riders of all abilities.
But they remain at an early stage, and the views of the public are being invited first, at a series of drop-in sessions and workshops at Coastal Housing’s Urban Village on High Street, to explain how the final schemes will appear.
Swansea Council’s cabinet member for regeneration Nick Bradley said: “These are important locations in the city centre and breathing new life into them will improve the appearance of the city and help attract more investment in the future.
“But the proposals are still at an early stage, which is why we’re now looking to get as much feedback as possible so that local people can help shape how the final plans will appear.
“We’ve chosen the Urban Village on High Street as the location for the drop-in sessions because it’s very close to the people who live, work, visit and travel through the project areas, making it easy for them to attend.
“We’re hopeful of a strong turnout because these sessions will give people the opportunity to influence how important parts of our city centre will look and operate in a few years time.”
The sessions take place next Wednesday, October 2, with a drop-in session from 2pm to 6pm and workshop from noon to 2pm; on Thursday October 3, the drop-in sessions from noon to 3pm and 5pm to 6pm, and workshop from 3pm to 5pm; and on Friday October 4, the drop-in sessions from 9am to 10am and noon to 1pm, with a workshop from 10am to noon.
