Two days for say on city's former Oceana site

Swansea Council survey on £30m high-tech business and leisure complex closes Friday

 A survey for people to tell Swansea Council what they think of early proposals for a £30m high-tech business and leisure building there closes at 5pm this Friday. The consultation opened on August 30.

Led by Swansea Council, the project is part of the regeneration of The Kingsway and is part-funded by the Swansea Bay City Deal.

Rob Steward, Swansea Council Leader and Chairman of the Swansea Bay City Deal’s Joint Committee, said:

“I thank all who attended the six days of public displays on this incredible facility that will be a beacon for those working in the digital industries and educational sectors.

“There is great interest among the public; it’s good to see they have confidence in our wish to regenerate this key area of the city centre and that they want to be part of inspiring the future of this space.

“They have offered much useful input through the public sessions and through the online survey – and we’ve consulted with a number of those working in the tech sector and with disability groups.

“I urge all those interested in influencing the future of this site to have their say. They have until Friday to do this.

“We want it to be a stunning new place for business and the public – and the public can help.”

The aim of 71 & 72 The Kingsway - the development's title for the time being - is for it to attract leaders and innovators in the high-tech business. Local people will be able to enjoy cultural activities. It is being designed with the potential for a public food and drink offer.
