Green light for 61 properties at waterside Swansea development

Persimmon Homes West Wales has been granted persimmon to build 61 units at Swansea’s SA1 development.

The application was given the go-ahead by Swansea City Council with the new builds comprising of 37 three-storey town houses and 24 apartments. Work will begin the end of this month.

The site forms part of the 100 acre mixed-use SA1 development down at the city’s docklands. It is purpose built for homes, businesses and the leisure sector and Persimmon Homes West Wales has already built 48 properties at the site.

Outline consent for the overall scheme was granted in 2003 with more than 1,000 homes being allocated to be built within SA1.

The 61 Persimmon Homes properties will form part of the final phase of the project.

Huw Llewellyn, managing director for Persimmon Homes West Wales, said:

“We’re delighted that our application has been approved and we can now start work on what is a very exciting development.

“This is a huge regeneration project for the city of Swansea and we’re happy to be playing our part.

“There is a need for more homes in South Wales and we’re confident that the 61 units will attract people to the docklands and breathe new life into this part of the city.

“We won’t waste any time beginning work as we look to be on site in the coming weeks.”
