The development framework encourages: access by bus and bicycle, use of renewables or low energy materials in construction, reuse of materials, local sourcing, renewable energy, integration of wind, solar energy and natural landscaping to maximise solar energy.

beyond bricks and mortar

The works at Felindre also include the provision for training placements and work experience opportunities with the contractor on site for local people who are unemployed or economically inactive.

This forms part of a Swansea Council scheme called ‘Beyond Bricks and Mortar’ – an important initiative to secure social benefits from procurement and regeneration activity in Swansea for the lasting benefit of the whole community.

“The closure of the Felindre tinplate works was a significant loss to the community, but this multi-million pound regeneration venture is having a truly transformative effect on the local area.

I’m very pleased the Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund have been able to support the development of this business park which will create hundreds of jobs and boost the local economy.”
