Have your say on a key part of Swansea’s world-class seafront

SWANSEA citizens are being urged to have their say on possible improvements to the seafront between the Civic Centre and Blackpill.

Swansea Council is eager to hear what people think of the seafront, beach and the facilities on both side of the main road; they want to know what improvements local residents and visitors would like to see.

The long-term aim is to enhance the seafront in a way that people want.

The council wants to help create a year-round sustainable experience that supports the local economy, the wellbeing of users and the management of natural habitats.

No decisions have yet been made, but the public’s ideas could include:

  • improvements to facilities such as Blackpill Lido, Singleton Boating Lake, the Singleton Park crazy golf and the prom’s exercise equipment;
  • changes to help people access the area on foot, by bike, by public transport, car or the Swansea Bay Rider land train;
  • enhanced facilities for tourism, sport or leisure;
  • improvements to food and drink on offer;
  • more encouragement of biodiversity in locations such as the sand dunes and grassed areas.

Developments could also include improved accessibility or education facilities such as hides, walkways or information boards explaining local habitats and species.

The council’s Swansea Bay Seafront Consultation began on June 21 and is due to end at midnight this Sunday (Note: July 14).

It takes around five minutes to complete and is available here – www.bit.ly/Seafront24

It’s being funded by the UK Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF) and is part of the council’s wider multi-million pound SPF programme which focuses on areas such as employability, local areas, culture and tourism, rural development and business support.

Council cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies said: “I encourage everybody to have their say on how we can work to improve the seafront between the Civic Centre and Blackpill.

“Many thousands of people use this outstandingly beautiful area every week to walk, run or cycle.

“Others enjoy a range of pursuits on the beach – and many enjoy visiting facilities run by the council and private businesses.

“We’re eager to hear great ideas from the public and will use their feedback to help us plan the area’s future.”

Any improvements will depend on the council securing funding – but every suggestion will be taken into account.
