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 along the route.

In partnership with Swansea Business Improvement District (BID), a feasibility study was carried out, providing a number of options for how the street could be remodelled.

Businesses in the area were consulted on how they would like to see Wind Street improved. Many want to see more emphasis on pedestrian priority which could help support businesses during day and night-time use.

The new scheme will include Wind Street being converted to a one-way street, controlled access for vehicles, improved street lighting and better use of pavement space to enable more seated areas.

Following a Cabinet decision today, the Council will now move to the next stage of the process which involves securing funding through grant bids along with capital funding from the council.
