Planning permission granted for Swansea Central

Full planning permission has now been granted by Swansea Council for the £125 million first phase of the Swansea Central development.

A key feature of the transformational city centre scheme is a new urban park – the first to be created in the city since Victorian times.

With Buckingham Group now having been selected as the preferred contractor, work on the 3,500-capacity indoor venue and conference centre is expected to start next spring.
