Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter Takes Major Step Forward


Planning Permission Granted for Multi-Million Pound Innovation Quarter

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s (UWTSD) ambitious plans to develop a Swansea Waterfront Innovation Quarter in the city’s SA1 development have taken a major step forward today following outline planning permission approval from the City and County of Swansea.

During a meeting of Swansea Council’s Planning Committee yesterday afternoon, outline planning permission was granted for the multi-million pound project and the Committee’s members praised the comprehensive nature of the master plan and UWTSD’s engagement and collaboration with key stakeholders.

Cllr Rob Stewart, Swansea Council Leader, said: “The plans put forward by the University of Wales Trinity Saint David are hugely impressive. Together with Swansea University’s bay campus and plans for the world’s first tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay, these plans have the potential to help transform the Fabian Way and SA1 area into a knowledge economy cluster that will complement the city centre’s regeneration, create new jobs and boost Swansea’s profile as a city of academic expertise that’s at the forefront of new research, development and technology. Projects of this nature will help raise economic prosperity across the Swansea Bay City Region as a whole and develop spin-off benefits for local residents and visitors through the introduction of new facilities and improved infrastructure.”
