Swansea Council is looking at proposals to redevelop Wind Street to make it more accommodating for the thousands of people who visit the many pubs and restaurants found along the route.

The new scheme could include Wind Street being converted to a one-way street and better use of pavement space to enable more seated areas.

Robert Francis-Davies, Cabinet Member for Investment, Regeneration and Tourism, said: "Wind Street is an important part of our city centre and it's a location local businesses and the Council want to see improved."

Three options coming out of a feasibility study have been graded 'Bronze, Silver and Gold', based on costs and councillors are being asked to approve plans to move forward with the silver option.

Cllr Francis-Davies said: "This is an exciting regeneration scheme which will involve further significant investment in our city centre - helping to attract more people to the city and boost local businesses.
