Swansea’s Fabian Way corridor draft master plan under consideration

Words: Roger Milne

Swansea City Council and Neath Port Talbot Council have prepared a joint draft master plan designed to provide a more integrated approach to planning along the so-called Fabian Way corridor.

The corridor stretches for 5 kilometres either side of the A483 Fabian Way, which forms the eastern gateway road approach to Swansea city centre from junction 42 of the M4. It covers an area from the Amazon roundabout in Neath Port Talbot to the eastern bank of Swansea’s River Tawe.

The aim of the document, which is set to go out for public consultation later this month (October), is to capitalise on existing and emerging developments in the area.

These include the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon, Swansea University's Bay Campus, the Bay Studios and the University of Wales Trinity St David’s plans for a new waterfront campus at Swansea’s SA1 site.

The draft document backs the development of a knowledge economy cluster along Fabian Way that would complement the city centre's regeneration, create new jobs and boost economic prosperity across the Swansea Bay City Region as a whole.
