Former St David's shopping centre site and land south of Oystermouth Road

Swansea Council has appointed Rivington Land and Acme to manage the regeneration of the site both north and south of Oystermouth Road that's made up of the former St David's shopping centre, the St David's multi-storey car park and the LC car park. 

Outline planning consent has been granted for the scheme which includes a mix of leisure, retail, residential and commercial development combined with enhanced areas of public space and a new, wide, pedestrian bridge providing an improved link across Oystermouth Road.  

Detailed design on Phase 1 of this development is now underway. Phase 1 is to include a new arena, hotel and A3 offer to the south of Oystermouth Road; a wide pedestrian bridge link across Oystermouth Road leading to a multi storey car park with A3 use on the ground floor and potentially residential on upper floors, along with public realm improvements to include a park and playground. Reserved Matters will be submitted in Spring of 2018 with this phase scheduled for completion by 2021.  

The development of Phase 2 is currently at feasibility stage and will follow on from Phase 1.
