Future look of Welsh city layed out

Swansea unveils waterfront revival and 'floral city' plans

Landscaping, flowers and green spaces will play a large part in the way a Welsh city looks in the future. Swansea is shedding its dockside image but will not be forgetting its maritime history. The latest City Centre Action Plan unveils ideas for a “high-quality and distinctive city centre, based on its location as a waterfront city”. Tasks include moves to “improve the landscape and street design, introducing creative and innovative street furniture, additional landscaping and floral displays”. The intention is to make Swansea a “waterfront” and “floral” city. There are plans to enhance the range and quality of floral displays, which will mean “the introduction of year-round floral displays and an increase in the number of displays and organisations participating in Swansea in Bloom by 15 and 10 per cent respectively”, said a council representative. City Centre Partnership chairwoman Rosemary Morgan said: “We are on the threshold of an exciting new era for the city centre. “There is a vibrancy and confidence as a result of the developments. The strategic framework will build on these strengths and support further developments over the coming 10 years.”
