Outline planning permission granted for Swansea City redevelopment 681 509 Greengage Environmental

A transformational, mixed-use development proposed in Swansea City has been granted outline planning permission.  The development consists of the demolition of the existing structures and redevelopment of the site to provide retail, commercial, office and leisure use as well as a hotel and residential dwellings. Extensive areas of public realm and landscaping are also included in the proposals.

Greengage were commissioned by the Council of the City and County of Swansea to provide sustainability services for the project. The aim was not only to deliver a sustainable scheme that was environmentally sensitive but a scheme that also maximises the opportunities to benefit the local and wider community.

Greengage provided sustainability services including a sustainability statement for planning that was based around the Welsh Wellbeing of Future Generations Act and its seven Wellbeing Goals. The report identified how the sustainability features integrated into the development addressed each of the goals and therefore covered all aspects of sustainability.

The incorporation of green infrastructure throughout the scheme with vibrant, connected and accessible pedestrianised zones is a key theme of the sustainability strategy ensuring that the wellbeing of people is kept at its heart.

Greengage also produced BREEAM pre-assessments for the non-residential proposed uses to ensure sustainability issues were considered across all areas of the design and at an early stage in the project.
