Detailed plans by Swansea Council's development manager, Rivington Land, for Phase 1 of the 'Swansea Central' scheme have been submitted. This £100 million first part of the development incorporates a 3,500-capacity digital venue to be run by ATG.

The development will also include a coastal park together with parking on the southern side of Oystermouth Road, plus further parking, commercial and residential uses on the north side. The sites will be united and linked with the city centre by a broad pedestrian bridge.

The development – which already has outline consent – will also see the start of enabling works this month.
