Swansea_2.jpgEconomic Regeneration Strategy for the Swansea Bay City Region


Client: City and County of Swansea

The Swansea Bay City-Region contains a high quality natural environment including two National Parks, dynamic urban centres including Swansea City Centre, and attractive market towns serving as local economic, leisure and service hubs. With a resident population of 685,000, supporting some 280,000 jobs, and containing around 20,000 businesses, SWW is a major driver of the Welsh economy.

The City and County of Swansea, on behalf of neighbouring local authorities in South West Wales, commissioned SQW to develop a new long-term economic regeneration strategy and action plan for the region.

The strategy development and action planning process involved extensive stakeholder engagement including three large-scale workshop events.
