The public has asked for their opinion on the new Park & ​​Ride site in Swansea

The current site is set for redevelopment as part of Hafod Copper Works’ ongoing regeneration programme, which has already seen part of the historic site turn into a new site for the famous Penderyn Distillery.

A public consultation is now open, seeking the opinion of park and ride users, so that a new site can meet the needs of future travellers.

Two alternative sites in Swansea Vale are in the running for the relocation of the park and ride site.

The two potential sites of Blawd Road and Heron Drive are closer to the M4 and have the potential to include over 1,300 parking spaces.

The Council now wishes to hear from the public so that their point of view can be taken into account before deciding on the choice of the site.

Andrew Stevens, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure, said: “The current Landore Park & ​​Ride site is needed as part of the longer term regeneration of the Copper Works site.

“Park & ​​Ride remains a priority for the Council, in terms of providing sustainable transport options for people who want to visit the city center for work or leisure.

“The site options provide excellent access directly from the M4, allowing commuters and other visitors to easily park outside the city center and use public transport to continue their journey to the city center .

“Our existing park and ride facilities at Landore and Fabian Way were both developed many years ago and have been improved over time to provide facilities for cyclists as well as the installation of electric vehicle charging stations.

“We look forward to hearing from motorists about their needs and requirements ahead of the development of a new site and I encourage anyone using Park & ​​Ride to get involved.”

The public consultation on the relocation of Landore Park & ​​Ride will run until November 30 and can be viewed at www.swansea.gov.uk/parkandridesurvey
